Lifejacket Loaner Stations

Lifejacket Loaner Stations provide lifejackets for the public to borrow, at no cost, and then return after use. Lifejackets of all sizes are readily available - when and where they are needed most as well as Water Smart® public education.

The Lifesaving Society will work with communities and organizations to establish the Lifejacket Loaner Station program.

In 2023, forty (40) Lifejacket Loaner Stations were available across Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
