LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11's Mark Edwards sits down with Bob Cushing with Arkansas Game and
Fish Commission about proper boating education while out on the water.
As the summer temperatures continue to rise, many people look to beat the heat out on one of the many lakes in Arkansas. But it's important to keep some basic safety tips in mind while on the water.
The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission offers boater education classes every year. Cushing, AGFC Boating Education Coordinator, says these classes are a requirement if you plan on operating a boat on the water.
The next boater education class in Pulaski County will be offered on Saturday, June 29 from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. You must pre-register for the class by calling (501) 223-6377. The class will be held in the AGFC Auditorium at #2 Natural Resources Drive in Little Rock.
