Right now is a great time to be out on the lake. The weather in our Havasu community is gorgeous. The warmer temps have heated up the water nicely. But it’s not too hot outside yet. You need to be prepared. If your family has outgrown last year’s life jackets, you need to bring them to London Bridge Beach Park this Saturday. That’s when the 2016 Wear It Colorado Life Jacket Exchange takes place.
What: 2016 Wear It Colorado Life Jacket Exchange
Where: London Bridge Beach Park
When: Saturday, May 21st, 10am to 12pm (while supplies last)

2016 Wear It Colorado Life Jacket Exchange
Arizona law requires that there be one appropriately sized life jacket for each person aboard any boat out on the lake. While they don’t necessarily have to be worn all the time, they must be in good condition and available to use at any time. If yours are neither serviceable nor the right size, you need to come to the 2016 Wear It Colorado Life Jacket Exchange. Bring your old, rundown, outgrown jackets and exchange them for a new one, courtesy of the AZ Fish and Game and the local police department.
Life jackets will be exchanged on a first come/first served basis. Only one jacket exchange per person is allowed at a time. However, if you do have more than one jacket that you want to turn in at the 2016 Wear It Colorado Life Jacket Exchange, you can get back in line while supplies last. Everyone is welcome to participate. Unfortunately, many people took advantage of this event last year. Several residents went out and bought the generic orange vests for $5 and exchanged them for nicer, upgraded life vests. The AZ Fish and Game Department doesn’t consider this a fair trade and neither should you. The condition of your life jacket is not a factor in the exchange. However, the traditional orange life jackets will not be allowed at this year’s exchange.
Haven’t had a safety check on your boat yet? Bring it to the 2016 Wear It Colorado Life Jacket Exchange. AZFGD will be happy to perform a thorough safety inspection on your vessel to make sure it is ready for the water this season. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
