The United States Coast Guard has just redefined the saftey zone around the 4 fireworks barges as 1,000 feet.
All boaters interested in viewing the event on the water are asked to be extra cautious and pay special attention to the Coast Guard Auxiliary patrol boats with flashing yellow lights. They will be ensuring boaters do not get within the 1,000 feet perimeter safety zones around the four fireworks barges.
All boaters are also encouraged to review the ABCs of California Boating . A new law requires children under the age of 13 to wear a lifejacket on a vessel of any length.
