Experts hope free boat safety checks will save lives

Experts hope free boat safety checks will save lives
News from WLOX:

LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -

A long holiday weekend and sunny skies were enough to convince many coast residents to go for a boat ride. Before people set sail, a safety check in Long Beach helped to make sure they had all they needed to be okay on the water.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard there were more than 4,606 boating accidents in the country in 2010. Those accidents are responsible for 672 deaths and 3,153 injuries. With the recreational boating season soon to be in full swing, Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 35 is doing what it can to keep people safe on the water.

Bob McNally and his family are avid boaters. They know all too well how scary it can be when things go wrong on the water.

“I’ve been in some unsafe situations. I’ve had a couple of boats sink underneath me,” said McNally. “To have proper boating equipment on board can save your life. It’s not just your life; it’s your family’s life, too.”

Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 35 began doing courtesy safety checks 20 years ago by inspecting fire extinguishers, life jackets, first aid kits, flares and more. They’re also advising people to take along a fully charged cell phone in case they need to call for help.

Another tip is to always let someone back on land know where you’re going and when you’ll be back, so if you run into t…………… continues on WLOX

News from Farmington Daily Times:

FARMINGTON — The state environment department is offering free boating safety courses this spring and summer.
All motorboat operators born on or after Jan. 1, 1989, must complete a boating safety course, spokeswoman Jodi McGinnis Porter said in a prepared release.
The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators has approved an eight-hour boating safety course, which provides students the opportunity to interact with an experienced boating instructor and to network with other boaters, according to the release issued from the state Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department.
Students must score 80 percent or higher on the closed book exam to receive their Boater Education Card, which is honored in almost every state in the country. Passing students will receive their certification and a coupon for two nights of camping for the price of one at any New Mexico State Park. In addition, many insurance companies offer significant discounts on boat insurance, with proper certification.
 Processing of the actual education cards can take up to 45 days and officials recommend planning ahead and signing up early. Proof of boater education must be carried aboard during boating operations. Children 12 years old or under must wear a life jacket approved by the U.S. Coast Guard while on the deck of a moving vessel. State Park offic…………… continues on Farmington Daily Times

Insurers free to ignore standards, floods inquiry told
News from ABC Online:

Updated September 19, 2011 21:48:10

Queensland’s flood inquiry has heard that in times of disaster, insurers do not have to meet national standards.

The inquiry into last summer’s floods began its second round of hearings in Brisbane on Monday, focusing on land planning and the conduct of insurance companies.

Counsel assisting the commission Peter Callaghan told the session that in times of unprecedented disaster, insurers do not have to meet national standards.

He said they could instead meet their own internal guidelines on how best to deal with the volume of claims being made.

“In times of catastrophe or disaster, and when faced with an unusual number of claims, the code allows that insurers may not be able to meet the standards which would ordinarily apply,” he said.
