Welcome to the North American Safe Boating Campaign’s Resource Warehouse. For many years, the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) through a grant provided by the U.s. Coast Guard, has been providing this order fulfillment service. NSBC does this in conjunction with its many member and partner organizations. NSBC and they provide the quantities of free boating safety education resources for your organization’s distribution.
Free and Paid Resources
This portion of our Web site brings you the best of both worlds—free and paid resources. Free resources have been clearly identified with a separate product category (left navigation column), and they are interspersed within the product format categories to facilitate your order selection.
Product Limits and Availability
While the paid resources have no restrictions for quantities, our free resources do have quantity restrictions. These limitations help us ensure that an equitable amount of these resources are being distributed to as many organizations as possible throughout the annual campaign term. All products are subject to change in price, offer, and availability.
While our interface to you is a “virtual” warehouse, we do maintain a centralized physical location for shipping and maintaining inventory. It’s from this location where we process the orders, provide customer services, and ship the orders.
Free resources within quantity limits specified, are shipped from this warehouse free to you by courtesy of the U.S. Coast Guard grant. Individually, as you proceed with your order, these free resources are exempt from shipping charges. Paid resources, however, are assigned specific shipping charges by weight. In cases where an order may include both free and paid resources, only the paid resources (and their respective shipping weight) are factored into the shipping charge for your order.
Please note, new this year, we now offer UPS Next Day Air® and UPS 2nd Day Air® to meet your on-demand needs. These are “real-time” UPS shipping rates based on your location and are applicable for ALL resources ordered.
Additional Services/Custom Products
Through our warehouse, where designated, we are also offering additional services and products with your organization’s name, logo, and/or website. There are additional charges for these products, but in the interest of meeting more of your needs [and identity] to help spread the “Wear It” message, the added cost may be within your budget and further justify your adoption of the campaign.
