Life Jackets for Loan
Drowning is a leading cause of fatal injury in Washington, particularly for toddlers, preschoolers and teenagers. In the Pacific Northwest, many drownings occur in open water such as lakes, rivers or the ocean. Ninety percent of those who drown are not wearing life jackets.
Mary Bridge loans life jackets, free of charge, for short-term use (up to two weeks) year around. We fit both children and adults for life jackets and offer a brief lesson on proper use. You can pick up life jackets for your family on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays — by appointment only—from our office in Tacoma.
