Inland Ferries Safety Information
Transport Canada measures are in effect:
- Travelers must stay inside vehicles at all times
- Walk-ons with symptoms of COVID-19 not permitted
- Walk-ons must stay in designated zones only
- All amenities closed until further notice
All of the inland ferry vessels are fully outfitted with safety equipment, from life jackets and life rafts to fire extinguishers and detectors. Inland ferries and crew are regulated by Transport Canada Marine Safety and Security.
In the unlikely event of an emergency, information will be available from crew or via the public address system.
On each of the vessels, there are firefighting and lifesaving equipment plans. Muster station signs show you where to gather in case of emergency. Life jackets for adults and children are stowed in clearly marked lockers. Please familiarize yourself with this information and the locations of life jackets and muster stations once you are aboard.
How to Put on a Life Jacket
- Pull the life jacket over your head.
- Cross the straps behind your back, and tie them securely in front.
- Tie the straps beneath your chin.
- Check to ensure that the knots are secure.
