PARRISH – Manatee County Search and Rescue debuts a new marine unit.
It’s a 17-foot Patten inflatable dive rescue boat and it was paid for by volunteers.
The new addition allows them to be more versatile and available to assist in a wider variety of emergencies.
The function of the county’s search and rescue is to be an asset to agencies that need more specialized personnel in the event of a disaster.
Manatee County Search and Rescue Director of Communications Meghan Wolf says the custom boat is designed for emergency situations.
Wolf says, “There’s actually a flap that opens up here at the front of the boat that’s away from the motor so that way our diver can actually go through here and when we actually pull up over somebody, the flap opens up and we can actually pull them in rather than having to hoist them over the side.”
Wolf says they have been doing in-house training and they’re ready to assist on the water.
