As the warm weather continues, more of us are taking refuge in and on the water. The DNR’s Lisa Dugan reminds:

“Life jackets are crucial for the boat and for the pool or the beach, and not just bringing them with you, but making sure you’re actually wearing the lifejacket because it doesn’t work if you don’t wear it.”

Dugan says despite your swimming ability, it’s important to wear a lifejacket.
