Arizona Game & Fish, with the help of the Lake Havasu City Police Department, are promoting boating safety awareness and a life jacket exchange program. Bring your unsafe, torn-up, or outgrown life jackets and get a new life jacket (while supplies last) and courtesy vessel safety checks are free to the public. Boaters who frequent Lake Havasu are all urged to stop over.
One jacket exchange per person at a time but people may get back in line if they have more than one jacket to exchange. The traditional “orange life jackets” will NOT be exchanged (unfortunately, previous year’s event brought folks exchanging brand new $5 traditional orange jackets for a better quality, more expensive jacket; the AZGFD does not consider this a fair exchange).
Please contact Arizona Game & Fish if you have questions. Event dates, times, and/or details are subject to change. Please contact event coordinator to verify information.
