“Kids and Dogs Don’t Float, Life Jackets Do!” Life Jacket Loaner Station
With the summer and boating season approaching the Community Ambulance Company partnering with the Suffolk County Police Department and the Atlantic Coast Veterinary Specialists is continuing to help keep kids and dogs safe while on the water by offering loaner life jackets to the public for the day or weekend, at no charge!
Community Ambulance made 20 (5 infant, 5 child, 5 youth and 5 adult) life jackets and 10 (2 extra small, 2 small, 2 medium, 2 large and 2 extra large) dog jackets available for loan, allowing hundreds of children, adults and dogs from our community to stay safer on the water. Every person who borrows a life jacket will be provided with water safety educational flyers to include how to properly size and wear the loaner jacket.
Here’s how the Life Jacket Loaner Program works: If a boater, resident or visitor discovers they don’t have enough life jackets, they can simply call 631-567-2586 Ext .117 to make an appointment to pick one up at the Community Ambulance 420 Lakeland Avenue in Sayville.
You will be asked to provide a valid Driver's license, phone number and sign a waiver upon receipt. When they’ve finished, just return the jackets to the same location.
