    All it takes is one step outside to be hit. With the temperatures rising along with the humidity, we all need to be mindful of exposure risks. Prolonged exposure to heat with over exertion can lead to heat exhaustion and heat stroke, both dangerous conditions.
    A quick search on the Mayo Clinic site is a great resource for all. They discuss the three heat related illnesses: heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke, including prevention and treatment.

    Our Flotilla was contacted by Gary Holcombe, Commodore Atlanta Division of Sea Scouts. He wanted to discuss the possibility of the Auxiliary working with the Sea Scouts at the old USCG base in Carrabelle.

    This week is National Safe Boating Week and the National Safe Boating Council has put out their safe boating tips for 2018.

    1. Wear a life jacket. No matter what activity you have planned on the water, always remember to wear a life jacket every time you are on the water. Accidents on the water can happen much too fast to reach and put on a stowed life jacket.

    This past week brought severe weather to our area. With the heavy rain and winds, it is not uncommon to have debris enter our waterways. In the days following a storm, it is a good habit to slow down and be more aware of what is in the waterway around you.
    Many tree limbs and other objects can be floating just below the surface, causing damage to propellers and engines.
    In more severe weather, channel markers can also shift.
