The US Coast Guard Auxiliary and state Department of Boating and Waterways are offering a life jacket exchange Friday.
Coast Guard Spokesman Ed Sweeney says people can get new life jackets in exchange for ones that don’t work or fit anymore. "The major theme this year is to get life jackets on children although there will be adult life jackets at each location. We’d prefer that the adult life jackets be used for children who’ve outgrown their children’s size life jackets."
Life Jacket trade-ins will be held Friday at Sacramento area Sam’s Club stores From 11 AM to 1 PM. Each store will have about 50 new life jackets.
