Life Jackets: Don’t leave the river bank without one


Division of Natural Resource Officers are encouraging everyone to wear a Lifejacket in water no matter how much experience you have.

Law Enforcement with the Division of Natural Resources  also say even if you are on a boat and have no intention on getting in the water they still encourage you to wear the life jacket in case of an emergency. West Virginia State Laws require anyone under the age of Twelve to wear a life jacket.

If a child is not wearing a jacket, the parent or guardian of the child could face fines.
