Both boats carry various rescue equipment, including basic medical supplies, rescue gear (rope throw bags, throw-able flotation, reach poles, water rescue/ immersion suits), extra PFD’s, spotlights, blankets, tarps & ponchos, maps, paddles, and fire extinguishers. Depending on the type of incident, additional equipment can be utilized, including oxygen, additional backboards, and other needed supplies the incident calls for.
In addition to the above supplies, 387 carries a folding floating backboard, and drag (recovery) hooks.
Boat 2, a flat bottom with 35hp Go-Devil Motor.
The boat and surface drive motor allows access to areas inaccessible to most powered craft (due to weeds, shallow water, etc.). Along with the above equipment, Boat 2 carries a flambeau pole (push pole) to allow us to maneuver in very shallow water.
