Here's USAR 801 with its recently delivered boat trailer. There are four of these trucks, one per Task Force 8 member department (Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh). Each is identically equipped with water rescue equipment. The custom-built trailers will carry two inflatable boats, spare motors, generators, and lights. The trailer's third level can carry a third boat, or be used for storage. It can also be used as an observation deck. Click to enlarge:





Remembering Hurricanes Fran and Floyd and all the water that was dumped in NC, these are a welcome sight. I remember working with nothing more than jon boats, rope, life preservers, and just enough knowledge to get us killed.
