Guam - Over a dozen men and women representing the Coast Guard, Guam Fire, and the Guam Police Department were present for the launch of Guam Safe Boating Week.

From May 17 through May 23, these safety officials will raise awareness on proper precautions while out in the water.

On average, 700 people die in boating accidents in the US annually with Guam reporting two fatalities earlier this year.

The week will remind locals and tourists alike the importance of using life vests, radios, and distress signals as water conditions can change at a moment's notice.
