Need your help - Rescue Boats

Posted on August 25, 2010 at 9:30am 0 Comments

My department operates in a distrtict that is located along the shores of Lake Erie, in New York State. Curently we operate a small rescue boat that has proven to be not large enough for the increase in calls we have been getting for distressed boaters and swimmers as well as missing swimmers. The shoreline consists mostly of high cliffs, with occassional beach/cove areas along a 42 mile span that is considered within our water response area.

Bill....You could contact either Lisbon Fire Department in Lisbon NY or Waddington Fire Department again in NY....I know that's where Lisbon got theirs...I believe Waddington did the same but may be mistaken....

Hi William,
thank you for the explanation, i forgot to mention that we also have hard suction hoses. We use the largest hoses (70mm) to supply from a hydrant or a truck with water, and we also use in the ladders. The medium hoses (45mm) we can use to supply or to attack line, and we use the smallest hose (25mm) in some fires, but the 25mm hose has a good thing, easy to transport, and to pull. the others hoses semi rigid, 25mm and 32 are pre - connect
One more time, thank you for your explanation
