(CMR) Newlands MLA Alva Suckoo and District Council Chairman Olsen Anderson are making life vests available to anyone in the constituency who has a boat or watercraft as part of their initiative to keep people safe while enjoying the water.
Speaking to Cayman Marl Road Suckoo shared that:
“It’s Summer time and people are naturally enjoying the weather and going out on the water but I’ve also seen a number of 911 reports of incidents occurring that can easily become tragic. The marine police and emergency services do an excellent job but I believe in prevention and with the assistance of a very generous anonymous donor, myself and Newlands District Council Chairman Olsen Anderson were able to get this initiative going. The vests are free and residents should also bear in mind it’s a legal requirement to have them on their boats.”
Anyone who requires a life vest can contact Suckoo via text directly on 25-2582 or email: [email protected] and he will arrange for delivery.
