Boat Safe and Boat Smart this Summer!

Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announced that the New York State Boater’s Guide is now available through his office. The guidebook is made possible by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation. The guide provides a summary of the more important laws, registration and training requirements, as well as suggested safety information governing recreational boating within New York State.

“Just like there are ‘rules of the road’ for vehicles, there are ‘rules of the waterway’ that govern the safe maneuvering of watercrafts”, said County Clerk Jacobs. “I encourage all recreational boaters and jet skiers to know the risks, learn the rules and be prepared before taking the helm this boating season.”

The Boater’s Safety Guide is available by request. Please contact the Erie County Clerk’s Office at 716-858-7754 or e-mail ErieCountyClerkOffice@erie.gov to request your free copy.
