GMAK speaks to Cmdr. Shane Montoya from the US Coast Guard about Safe Boating Week and Wear Your Life Jacket To Work Day.

People are encouraged to participate in Wear Your Life Jacket To Work Day to increase awareness of boating safety and encourage all Alaskans to wear a life jacket anytime they are in a boat.

So bring your life jackets to work on Friday, May 17.

Take a picture of yourself in your life jacket and post it to our facebook page.

The Coast Guard will also be offering free boat safety checks at Big Lake on Saturday, May 18.
