Green Bay Metro Fire Department New Fire Boat 9-16-15

It was an exciting day for the Green Bay Metro Fire Department. The department received a new state of the art fire boat. The Green Bay Metro Fire Department held a demonstration of the boat by placing a man into the Fox River as well as using a Fire Pump capable of producing 2,000 gallons of water per minute. The boat will be used during rescue and firefighting operations. Fire chief David Litton says it will help the team when it comes to accidents on the water. I will tell you this the potential always exists. Whether it’s a boat being stranded out in the bay whether it’s somebody who capsizes their boat which we had an incident of this summer whether there’s a fire onboard or somebody overboard there’s all those potentials. The price tag of the boat is $315,000. $225,000.00 was donated by Green Bay Area Petroleum Companies $90,000.00 will come from Green Bay Tax Payers. WGWI-PUBLICATIONS would like to express a huge Thank You to the Green Bay Metro Fire Department for sending us an invitation to the event.
