We are excited to introduce the first four videos of the Sea Scout Safety Moment series. These short, peer to peer safety videos cover life jackets, fire extinguisher use, the 10 personal essentials, and the 10 boat essentials. They are appropriate for any audience, Sea Scouts, Scouts, and the boating community as a whole. Enjoy and share!
