Raleigh, NC, 5 April 2019 – The United States Power Squadrons® (USPS) continues the debut of its third season of safe-boating videos on America’s Boating Channel™ with “SITUATIONAL AWARENESS,” which can be found online at americasboatingchannel.com and as a free mobile app available at Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

The new “SITUATIONAL AWARENESS” video shows how onboard technology and environmental factors can negatively impact recreational boating safety.

Viewers will learn what boat operators and passengers can do to become more aware of what's going on around them.

Also featured are tips about additional sensory dangers and how to mitigate them.

The “SITUATIONAL AWARENESS” video is also being distributed by America’s Boating Channel through popular social media including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

America’s Boating Channel is now releasing a new safe-boating video every Friday as most Americans prepare for the recreational boating season.

Topics covered in the new series include cold water survival, life jacket wear, human-propelled sports, electronic navigation, situational awareness, and boating under the influence (BUI).

All video programming on the channel is offered at no charge.

America’s Boating Channel is produced by United States Power Squadrons under a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.

As the premier boating organization dedicated to “Safe Boating through Education” since 1914, USPS is America’s Boating Club® -- For Boaters, By Boaters™.

America’s Boating Channel partners with BoatUS and is cosponsored by Discover Boating with a contribution from Weems & Plath.
