U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District’s Simon DeSoto, Colorado River lockmaster, earned second and third place awards for his radio water safety public service announcements during the 17th International Boating and Water Safety Summit in San Antonio, Texas. The radio PSAs “20 seconds to drown” and “Boating accidents, not me” highlight the importance of wearing life jackets while recreating on the water and alerts listeners to the minimal time it takes for a child to drown – 20 seconds. DeSoto partnered with Happy Radio 92.5 to produce and broadcast the PSAs to a potential audience of 36,000 listeners along the Texas coast. Judges graded the submissions on the clarity of the message, the uniqueness/innovation of the PSA and on the overall boating/water safety message.

  • '2009 NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK'
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Using your boat this week? Grab your life jacket and 'Wear It!'
Accidents happen too fast on the water to reach for stowed life jackets. Most boating fatalities are drownings - and 90 percent of those who drown, while boating, are not wearing a life jacket.
Now, new styles are available - comfortable, lightweight and perfect for any boating activity or sport.
May 16th through 22nd is National Safe Boating Week. Why not celebrate, by starting to wear your life jacket at all times while boating. And ask your friends and family to do the same!
The National Safe Boating Council, its local partners and this station remind you: don't just carry a life jacket - 'Wear It!'
