Fish Safe Announces $50 PFD Voucher Campaign
Fish Safe is pleased to announce a major, new initiative for BC’s commercial fishermen that hopes to encourage even more fishermen to purchase and wear PFDs while working.
When fishermen participate in our free, 1 day Safest Catch workshop (click here for details about the Safest Catch) participants will receive a $50 voucher towards the purchase of a PFD of their choice.
For years the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) has emphasized the importance of PFDs. Since 2004 the lack of a PFD has been present in 44% of fishing-related fatalities in British Columbia. Behind stability related incidents, man overboard incidents are tragically the number one killer of commercial fishermen.
Merging practical, vessel based safety training with essential safety equipment – like PFDs – just makes sense. If you fish commercially in BC, spread the good news and register today to qualify to get your $50 PFD voucher!
Here’s how to get your $50 PFD voucher:
- STEP 1: Register here or call 604-261-9700 for your FREE 1 day Safest Catch workshop
- STEP 2: Upon completion of the workshop, your Fish Safe Safety Advisor will provide you with your certified voucher
- STEP 3: Purchase a PFD of your choice by the expiry date noted on your voucher
- STEP 4: Snap pictures with YOU and your new PFD along with your RECEIPT in full
- STEP 5: Email your pictures to Fish Safe. Once verified, Fish Safe will send you a cheque for $50 within 30 days!
