Children's Life Jackets - Wisconsin

In the state of Wisconsin, there are no regulations pertaining to age requirements so the Federal Regulations come in to play, stating all children under the age of 13 must wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket or life vest on all federal waterways. Contact your state agency to find out which are the federal waterways in Wisconsin.

Life vests and life jackets are to be in good condition and fit the child properly at all times. The only exception would be when the child is in a cabin or below deck.

The USCG and your boat insurance company will expect you to comply with the Washington state boating safety regulations.
