Marine Rescue 2 has recently been placed into service to serve the 39 miles of shorefront of the North Queensbury Fire district.   This is a 1989 23 foot Robala with twin 150hp fuel injected Evenrude outboard engines.  We want to thank the Warren County Sheriffs department for making this possible, these served as patrol boats for Lake George for the last 12 years.  It will have on board GPS and Radar for evening and fogy night rescues.    It will carry an EMS Kit, Backboard, Defibrillator, Shallow Water Rescue Equipment, and a Portable Pump for boat and shore fires.
