Water Rescue Boat

The Swan Quarter Volunteer Fire Department acquired a used 21’

Parker fiberglass boat in 2017 that, when properly outfitted, will be utilized as a Water Rescue Boat. Originally owned by the North Carolina Marine Patrol, the boat, 200 HP Mercury outboard motor, and trailer were purchased as surplus from the State of North Carolina. Before the boat is put into service, it will be outfitted with a fire pump and other necessary emergency rescue equipment. We are partnering with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission who will provide appropriate training for our personnel.
