Townbank Fireboat on standby for the Cape-to-Cape Paddleout

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

A few weeks ago, the Townbank Fire Company Marine 61 assisted in the Cape-to-Cape Paddleout which starts in Cape May, NJ and ends in Cape Henlopen, DE. Marine 61 is a 36-foot all aluminum boat with twin Diesel engines and Twin fire pumps capable of putting out up to 4000-GPM, two deck monitors, full electronics including Night Vision and a variety of firefighting and EMS equipment. The boat is ported at Utschs Marina in Cape May and stays in the water year round, with the exception of two maintenance periods. The Cape-to-Cape Paddle Event benefits the DeSatnick Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed to help those living with Spinal Cord Injury in Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Ocean, and Monmouth Counties in New Jersey.
