CHAPTER 4: Emergency Preparedness

RENDERING ASSISTANCE

If you are involved in an accident, you should exchange information with and assist those in the accident without endangering your own life or the safety of your vessel. If you see a distress signal, you should assist those in distress if you can do so without putting your vessel or crew at risk. If you cannot assist, make sure you notify the nearest boaters or authorities who can assist.
