Raleigh, NC, 21 November 2022 – America’s Boating Channel™, the U.S. Coast Guard funded boating safety and boater education video service, produced by United States Power Squadrons® (USPS), has entered into an agreement with the Corps of Engineers Natural Resources Education Foundation, doing business as the Corps Foundation (CF), the nonprofit partner of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), to include forty-eight (48) boating and water safety education videos in America’s Boating Channel’s new smart TV offerings.

Some of the CF video titles that help promote the Life Jackets Worn…Nobody Mourns campaign include “Inflatable Life Jackets: Everything You Need to Know,” “Carbon Monoxide: The Silent Killer,” “Retrieval Done Right, Knot Wrong,” “Swim Challenge,” and many others.

The announcement was made by America’s Boating Channel’s Vice President of Business Development, Kathy Strachan, and the Corps Foundation’s Grant Manager, Rachel Garren.

“The Corps Foundation’s creative treatments offer a wide range of boating and water safety topics greatly expanding our program line-up for both the on-demand app and continuous playing video channel and will contribute enormously to our mission of making the waters safer for everyone,” said Kathy Strachan.

Rachel Garren added, “This opportunity to make the Life Jackets Worn…Nobody Mourns campaign videos more accessible to the public through America’s Boating Channel’s smart TV offerings has great potential to improve recreational boating safety and save more lives on our nation’s waters.” 

Strachan concluded, “America’s Boating Channel’s expansion from online and social media delivery of boating safety and boating education videos is now underway. We are on track to become the first television channel exclusively for boaters, with boating lifestyle, sports, news, and entertainment genres of TV programming. Launch dates for both the America’s Boating Channel smart TV on-demand app and linear video channel will be announced soon.”
