Warren, RI, Gets New High-Tech Rescue Boat
October 23, 2017
Rhody Beat: The Warren, RI, Fire Department now has one of the most well-equipped marine rescue units in the state, with the addition this month of a 25’ fire and rescue boat that for the last 10 years has served duty with the United States Coast Guard.
Warren’s “new” boat, purchased and outfitted for just under $150,000 of capital projects money approved by voters earlier this year, went in the water earlier this month. Harbormaster Ed Cabral is training five fire department members in its nuances, and he expects the bright red rescue vessel will be ready for calls by next month.
