Especially if you still rely on boats, ropes and other apparatus for ice, mud, swift water and shallow water rescues, you’ll definitely want to visit us at Booth 2704 to watch videos of hovercraft rescue operations - and see how a hovercraft safely and easily flies you into areas that no other vehicle can reach.
Neoteric is the world’s original and most experienced light hovercraft manufacturer; our rescue hovercraft are in operation in more than 50 nations. And we offer the only rescue hovercraft that gives you the ability to brake and back up – critical in rescue operations.
Check out what just a few of your fellow first responders say
about their Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft …
Perry-Clear Creek Fire Department, Indiana:
"We once had to carry a 300 lb. person on a backboard across some questionable open ice. Sure, we wear rescue suits for things like this, but they are not made for long hikes over open ice. If we get hurt while performing a rescue, all we've done is become another victim. It’s times like that when a hovercraft comes into play. The hovercraft is like a life insurance policy for our guys - that's what it boils down to.”
North Muskegon Fire Department, Michigan:
"Our hovercraft have saved more lives that all our fire engines combined. Since 1985, more than 255 people have been rescued from Muskegon area lakes using the hovercraft. More than half of them would have drowned not having the hovercraft as a safe rescue tool."
Mansfield Fire Department, Texas:
"The benefit of having the hovercraft is we do not have to send our personnel into the water to retrieve victims. It can also hover over logs, car tires and any other debris, unlike boats, that could be a hazard in the water. A hovercraft is the answer to a faster rescue - a safer rescue."
Central Fraser Valley Search & Rescue Society, Canada:
"The hovercraft gets us into areas that, before, we weren't able to reach, areas that our jet boat can't get into because we ingest debris into the impeller. And the hovercraft saves us a lot of time."
