Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

A group of swiftwater rescue team members are working on what makes a perfect rescue boat. You can see us tormenting the prototype at

Your comments, suggestions, critiicsms would be much appreciated.

Future plans include adding two trolling motors underneath with PWM speed controllers for differential steering. The speed controller will also receives RC transmission for true remote control and boat-only deployment.

Tell us what you think . . . and what you would like to see in a rescue boat.

This is not a product solicitation or advertisement. We do not have boats to sell . . . just a concept we're exploring.
