On November 22, 2013 the CG Office of Auxiliary and Boating Safety approved the CG Auxiliary Life Jacket Loaner Program Standard Operating Procedures and Guidelines. The goal of this program is to increase life jacket wear during water based activities as well as to educate the boating public on the importance of proper use and fit. The promulgation memorandum establishes the Life Jacket Loaner Program as an authorized Auxiliary activity. Auxiliarists may be assigned to duty to support this program. The Life Jacket Loaner Program SOP may be viewed in the MEMBERS ONLY area of the V-Dept website.
