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.
