Missouri Official Named to Federal Boating Safety Advisory Council

As swimming and boating traffic increases this summer, the Missouri boat accident lawyers at Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers point out that federal officials are looking to Missouri for answers about how to improve water safety.

According to Lake Expo, a member of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Captain Matt Walz, has been appointed to National Boating Safety Advisory Council. Capt. Walz was selected for his performance and history in marine law enforcement.

Capt. Walz has been with the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Missouri State Water Patrol for more than 25 years. During that time,  he has held many titles, including Commander of the Lake of the Ozarks region and Trainer for the Missouri State Water Patrol. As a member of the National Boating Safety Advisory Council, Capt. Walz will join 21 other officials in providing recommendations and advice to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on how to improve safety among recreational boaters.

At Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers, we understand the importance of advocating on behalf of boater safety. That’s why our St. Louis personal injury lawyers would like to congratulate Capt. Walz on his appointment, and we are hopeful his time on the council will be a success.
