OLD4NEW in Eurobodalla Feburary 18th and 19th
Member for Bega, Andrew Constance welcomed the visit of the OLD4New van into Bega last week. next will be the turn of Eurobodalla. Trained staff will provide advice on choosing the right lifejacket for your height, weight, ability and water activity, and tips on lifejacket care and service.
“This is Old4New’s fourth season and the team is as keen as ever to get amongst the community to spread the word that there is a modern and comfortable lifejacket for every body,” Mr Constance said.
“In NSW, it’s the law to service your inflatable lifejacket once a year or in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, so this is an excellent opportunity to understand exactly what you need to do to make sure your lifejacket always keeps you safe.”
“It’s a timely reminder for us all to think about how we can protect ourselves out on the water so that we can have a great day out and make it back home to the people we love.
“Wearing a lifejacket is by far the most effective way to prevent drowning while boating, and with new, modern designs, lifejackets are less bulky and more comfortable to wear so there’s no good reason for not chucking one on.” Media Release
