Boating safety demonstrations at the Delaware state fair

With heat hitting records levels throughout Delaware and elsewhere more people might be thinking how nice it would be to go out on the water.

DNREC is offering boating safety instruction when you stop by their booth at the Delaware State Fair in Harrington.  One of the main focuses in the demonstration will be on personal floatation devices.  DNREC says it’s important to remember that just because something is inflatable doesn’t mean that it something that everyone can use.  That’s especially true for children.
