“This case is a perfect example of proper boater preparation, inter-agency partners and the boating public coming together to save lives,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Tom Gargiulo, a Station Key West engineer. “We strongly encourage everyone taking to the seas to have personal locator beacons or electronic position indicating radio beacons ready to go. They can be the difference between life and death in some cases.”
