Marine Rescue 5A7-28 - 1983 AM General/2004 Firematic

Custom built by the local Pierce dealer (and painted in-town by a heavy truck repair shop), this rig is designed to provide both dive support & high water evacuation along the coastal areas of the district bordering the Long Island Sound. Equipped with a Honda generator, front & rear tow hitches, a portable winch and floodlights, the walk-in area’s custom design holds the team’s gear including 4 BC set-ups for rapid donning en-route.

Dive Boat 5A7-28 - 26’ Zodiac

Equipped with UHF/VHF/Fire band radios, a searchlight and night vision binoculars, it features 4 BC set-ups for rapid donning en-route to the dive location. In addition to the seven miles of coastline in their district, Rocky Point also responds as part of a mutual aid dive team task force along the Long Island Sound.

Organized in 1931 to protect the Tides & Terraces areas, Rocky Point Fire Co# 1 serves the western end of the district. Due to their location including proximity to waterfront access of the Long Island Sound as well as neighboring mutual aid districts, Company 1 is equipped for water/ice/dive rescue as well as extrication & rapid intervention.

Special thanks to Asst. Chief Terry McCarrick for arranging this photo shoot as well as Company# 4 member Gene Buchner for his assistance in positioning the apparatus for photos.
