Officials ask boat owners to label watercraft with contact info

By  | 

GLENBURN, Maine (WABI) - As the weather gets nicer and folks get out on the water, authorities are urging people to label watercraft.

They say if you own a boat, canoe or kayak to have your name, address, phone number and emergency contact info in it.

"So that when we encounter an incident like this again we can look at their information and then make contact with them and hopefully there's not an emergency," said Glenburn Assistant Fire Chief, Chris Lavioe.

They say if you do lose your boat to contact your local dispatch and make them aware of the situation.
