     In regard to the fireworks display to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to be held tonight (July 1), the Marine Department reminds members of the public to pay attention to marine safety when viewing the display at sea. Parents or adults should look after children and ensure that children are in a lifejacket at all times. Coxswains should keep a passenger and crew list in case it is needed. In addition, passengers should note the locations of emergency exits and lifejackets, and how to put on a lifejacket, before the vessel departs. Coxswains should refrain from speeding or overloading their vessels.

     Marine Department Notice No. 90 of 2017 has been issued with regard to special marine traffic control and safety measures for tonight. Members of the public can visit the department's website for more details (www.mardep.gov.hk).
