JUNE 2019 SAFETY TIPS

These tips are intended for residents, visitors and property owners of Brookfield, VT but may apply to neighboring towns as well.

SUMMER WEATHER CONCERNS

  • SUNBURN- In early Summer folks like to strip down and take in the sun after a long winter and chilly Spring. Please use sun block and discretion.  Do not try to get your Summer tan all in one or two exposures.  Be mindful of the threat of skin cancer.

 

 

 

 

  • BOATING- The following are the law!
    • All vessels, except sailboards, must carry one wearable U.S. Coast Guard (USCG)–approved Type I, II, III, or V personal flotation device (PFD), sometimes called life jacket, for each person on board.
    • In addition to the above requirement, vessels 16 feet in length or longer must have one USCG–approved throwable device on board and readily accessible.
    • Children under 12 years of age must weara USCG–approved Type I, II, or III PFD at all times while underway on the open deck of any vessel.
    • Vermont law prohibits anyone from boating while intoxicated (BWI) due to alcohol, drugs, or any combination.
