Life Jacket Loan Program

Life Jacket Loan Station IconThe California Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW) has partnered with public and private entities to make life jackets available to the public on a loan basis. DBW has provided life jackets to these stations so that an individual or family can check out a life jacket for a day or a weekend by simply completing a loan form. Some stations have life jacket use requirements, so please contact participating locations for specifics.

For information on life jackets laws or what type of life to use, please visit www.BoatResponsibly.com.
