OPEN HOUSE FOR NEW RESCUE BOAT
June 13 @ 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM PDTFree
The Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue new fast response vessel will be on public display at the Salmon Arm Wharf on Wednesday, June 13th from 4:00 to 7:00.
Everyone is invited to come and view the latest emergency response vessel serving Shuswap and Mara Lakes. Boating safety displays and resources will be available as well.
The new fast response vessel, Tolonen, is 40 feet long and has a fully equipped medical bay capable of attending to two stretches patients as once. Powered by two diesel jet drive engines generating nearly 900 horsepower, the Tolonen will nearly cut in half the response time to incidents on the lake. The Tolonen is equipped with all the latest technology for high speed navigation, day or night.
Come on down to the wharf and see the latest asset of RCMSAR 106 (Shuswap) as we continue to work to “Save Lives on the Water.”
