The U.S. Coast Guard is pleased with an incident free Labor Day weekend. After recent issues with water safety and lack of life vests being utilized, recent reports indicate many buckled down and took a safer approach to their holiday water enjoyment. Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Wahkene Kitchenmaster voiced tremendous praise for those on the water over the weekend.
Boating season is coming to a close following the Labor Day weekend as many tourists begin their journey home according to Kitchenmaster. While fishermen prepare for walleye and salmon spawning season, the U.S. Coast Guard continues their duty of keeping travelers on the Door County waterways safe.
