The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) recently announced a new national adult water safety campaign. The campaign, titled “Life Jackets Worn…Nobody Mourns,” is targeted towards adult males.

In the past 10 years, 88 percent of all USACE water-related fatalities were men and 68 percent were between the ages of 20 and 60. Also, 84 percent of those killed in water-related accidents were not wearing life jackets and 27 percent of boating fatalities were from falls overboard. In addition to boating falls, the activity that caused the most water-related fatalities was swimming in undesignated areas, according to data reported by the USACE National Operations Center (NOC) for Water Safety.
