Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death among children ages 1 – 14 years old. Wearing a life jacket* saves lives.
Seattle Parks and Recreation and Seattle Children’s Hospital have partnered with Mustang Survival and the Coast Guard Auxiliary to offer sales of low cost life jackets at Seattle public pools several times every summer.
The cost for life jackets sizes infant to youth large is $20, and for teens to adult size XXXL, is $30. The life jackets are comfortable, high-quality vests in fashion colors. Customers younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Fitters will be on site to help purchasers choose the correct size. The person for whom the jacket is being purchased must be present for proper fitting. All sales are final. No refunds, no returns.
