Statistics on boating accidents in Tennessee

The Boating and Law Enforcement Division of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has released its report on the calendar year 2013. The document compiles all "reportable boating incidents," a term that describes incidents that result in $2,000 or more in property damage, an injury that requires more treatment than first aid, a missing person or a death. Tennessee law requires that all individuals involved in a reportable boating incident must immediately inform the TWRA. The TWRA will then make a decision as to how to pursue the investigation.

Members of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency are charged with keeping the waterways in the state safe for anyone using them. In order to do their job effectively, they must be properly trained. Recently, these new officers have been being trained at Paris Landing where they can get training in a variety of situations, such as how to pull a vessel over and how to deal with the public.
