Boating Safety Class To Be Held

OSWEGO – Oswego County Sheriff Reuel A. Todd announced that another Boating Safety Course will be held in June.

There is no charge for the training.

A parent or guardian must accompany any youths ages 10 through 17 to the classroom on the day of the course to sign a parental permission form.

New York State Law requires boaters to hold a safety certificate if:
• You wish to operate a personal watercraft and are at least 14 years of age.
• You wish to operate a motorboat and you were born on or after May 1, 1996. You must be at least 10 years of age to take the course.
• Although not mandatory, except of PWC operation, adult boating education is strongly recommended.

This course will be held at the Oswego County Public Safety Center, 39 Churchill Road, Oswego, as follows:

June 24, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Pre-registration is required and class size will be strictly limited due to available space.

Interested students can register by calling Kim Trudell weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at (315) 349-3320.
