Dartmouth Fire Department purchases boat to aid in future patrols and rescues

“Congratulations to the Dartmouth Fire Department on their new Defender 430 Rescue RIB! 🚤

Previously they were running a 10’9″ tiller-driven dinghy, that was lacking room and reliability. Looking to accommodate more of their own crew and anyone else that needed to be picked up or transported, they decided it was time to move up.

With a capacity of 8 people and a 40 HP for power, these guys will now be able to patrol, rescue, and keep the waters surrounding Dartmouth safer and more enjoyable for everyone.”
