Rescue and response for emergencies on local waterways will happen more efficiently with the help of a new airboat that has arrived in Napoleon. It's an 18 foot boat, 8 feet in width, with a v-8 engine, and 450 horsepower. And it also has a re-enforced aluminum hull for rescues.
This rescue airboat can travel up to 50 miles per hour, at a cost of $59,000 with trailer included. Training on the new vessel will begin immediately.
