Help Us Care for Life Jacket Loaner Stations

Volunteers care for all the Sea Tow Foundation life jacket loaner stations nationwide. A few times each month, volunteers visit each station to take inventory of life jackets, to make sure the station is kept neat, and the station is stocked with properly working life jackets. To help care for one or more life jacket loaner stations in your area, find the life jacket loaner stations. Click this link to volunteer!
