In the First District Coast Guard and elsewhere, paddle sports-related fatalities have been trending upwards. The First District is taking a comprehensive approach with regard to paddle craft safety. Efforts underway target ways to ensure that paddle craft safety becomes a priority with all groups involved with paddle craft: manufacturers, distributors, safety professionals, owners and end users of paddle craft. They are relying on the Auxiliary to take the lead in better educating paddlers. The links below provide paddle sport safety PowerPoint course modules, tools and guidance for use in Public Education activities.
