Kia ora!

Did you know that one quarter of all preventable drownings in Aotearoa New Zealand happen in rivers? Or that nearly three quarters of those who drown without wearing a lifejacket when boating had one available on board.

Lifejackets cost money but the lack of one shouldn’t cost you your life. Thinking of heading out on the water but don’t have a good quality, correctly fitted lifejacket? You can borrow one from us.

Established in 2012 and funded by Safer Boating, the DPA Lifejacket Hubs partner with organisations in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and Waikato to offer lifejackets to anyone who needs them around.
