There will be a life jacket drive from June 28th to July 8th at Lake Shelbyville. The US Army Corps of Engineers will hold a life jacket drive at Forest “Bo” Wood Fee Both, Lithia Springs Marina Ship Store, and the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center. There are 15 life jacket loaner stations at Lake Shelbyville. Sea Tow Foundation is an organization that promotes boating safety and holds a life jacket loaner program. The Executive Director of Sea Tow Foundation, Gail R. Kulp, says that life jackets last a lot longer than people realize.
One area that life jacket loaner stations have started to reach out to is non-human life jackets. The Sea Tow Foundation has life jackets for your dogs as well.
