Global leader in technical solutions and services for the maritime, defense and aviation industries Drew Marine, parent company to ACR Electronics, Ocean Signal and NAL Research, is urging the commercial and recreational maritime communities to wear their life jackets as part of the National Safe Boating Council’s ‘Ready, Set, Wear It!’ campaign.
Boating safety professionals, the boating community and the media are invited to take part in the sixth-annual event on Saturday, May 21 when participants in cities around the world will gather to set a world record for the most life jackets worn and inflatable life jackets inflated.
Drew Marine’s leaders – Gerry Angeli, President and General Manager of ACR Electronics; Len Gelosa, President and CEO of Drew Marine; Alan Wrigley, Managing Director Ocean Signal; Ngoc Hoang, President NAL Research – teamed up at ACR Electronics’ international headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL, to send the message.
The goal of the National Safe Boating Council initiative is to promote the comfortable and versatile options when it comes to life jackets and to educate the public about life jackets and safe boating in general, as well as to set another world record and surpass 2015’s 10,917 participants from 11 countries.
Throughout the year, the North American Safe Boating Campaign (Wear It!) focuses on the goal of educating the public about safe boating and life jacket use, and relies on events like “Ready, Set, Wear It!” and National Safe Boating Week, from May 21st to 27th, to bring more awareness to this life-saving cause.
