DCSO Hosting FREE Boat Safety Inspection Clinics (Photo) - 06/17/24

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. - The Douglas County Sheriff's Office will be hosting three separate boat safety inspection clinics.   

This is a free opportunity to have a boat of any kind inspected to ensure it meets all legal requirements for the upcoming boating season. This is a great way to ensure boaters have all of the required safety equipment, learn about lifejacket safety or boating laws and ask any boating related questions of marine deputies.

The motorized inspection process will include checking for:

• Approved life jackets
• Working fire extinguishers
• Approved Type IV floatation devices
• Approved sound producing devices
• Working engine blower fans (if required)
• Assist with proper placement of Oregon registration numbers and registration stickers

Deputies can also answer questions about non-motorized boats and the requirements pertaining to them. Any non-motorized boat, including paddlecraft, 10' or longer are required to have a waterway access permit. 

The clinics will be at the following locations: 

  • SUTHERLIN BI-MART - Saturday, June 22, 2024, 12pm - 4pm
  • ROSEBURG BI-MART - Saturday, June 29, 2024, 12pm - 4pm
  • SALMON HARBOR MARINA (Winchester Bay) - Saturday, July 6, 2024, 1pm - 5pm

If the boat passes inspection, a 2024 inspection sticker will be issued.
