New Delivery for Lawrence FD

By William J. Lynch Jr., Correspondent | June 11, 2020 | MASSACHUSETTS

Story No. 061120101

The Lawrence Fire Department took delivery of this ONE Boat Complete Water Rescue Package. This set up allows the department to rapidly transport two boats to any incident scene. The bottom boat is the R ONE Series 1660 boat with a 40HP Mercury motor, command console, dive platform, LED work lights, Tomar emergency lights, and interior safety lights. The top boat is the R ONE Boat i-series 430 HD inflatable. This boat is all welded seams, has 5 chambers plus the keel, removable seats and a bow storage bag. The boat is powered by a 30HP Mercury motor. Both motors are protected by a prop-guard.

These boats sit on a double stack trailer which once the bottom boat is launched, the top boat is lowered to the water with a warn winch. This trailer also features our removable Trailer Tower. This 22k lumen LED light tower is mounted on a Reese receiver hitch which allows the light tower to be removed from the trailer and used on any vehicle with a receiver hitch. The tower is powered by the 12v outlet on the tow vehicle. When raised, the tower extends to 12-ft., allowing for full illumination of any incident scene.
