The Jacksonport Fire Department introduces their newest addition – a 2012 SEALEGS amphibious rescue boat.

Obtaining this boat is the result of numerous years of research, fundraising and planning. Due to the lack of suitable boat launch sites, the department always used boats that were small enough to be carried by firefighters. Firefighters are now able to launch the boat almost anywhere and have drastically reduced response times.
