With warm weather we all start thinking about outdoor activities like going to our rivers or taking our boats to the nearest lake or to Puget Sound. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office will be offering two “live training” boating courses in the near future so that boaters can earn their Washington State boater education cards. Pre-registration is required!
State law requires all Washington residents born after January 1, 1955 who operate powered watercraft 15 hp or greater to carry a Washington Boater Education Card. You must be at least 14 years-old to operate a personal watercraft.
The first session will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2016 between 9am and 3pm at Fire District 1 Headquarters (12425 Meridian Ave S, Everett). To pre-register contact:
The second session will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2016 between 8:30am and 5pm at the Sheriff’s Office North Precinct (11500 40th Ave NE, Marysville). To pre-register contact:
Deputy Bryson McGee
At both locations, vessels from the Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit will be on display for an interactive, hands-on experience. Kids and family members are welcome to attend.
