LAST CHANCE! See a Rescue Hovercraft in Flight at #FDIC International

Firefighters & rescue professionals, we know you've seen thousands of interesting things this week at FDIC International, the largest fire conference in the world. But there's only one place to see something vitally important to you that appears nowhere else but Outdoor Demo Booth 19302 - and only for a few more hours: a Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft in action.

For the last few years, Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. has been the only rescue hovercraft exhibitor at the FDIC. There's a reason for that. Founded in 1960, Neoteric is the world's original and most experienced light hovercraft manufacturer, with clientele in 50+ nations, including Police, Sheriff and Fire Departments, U.S. Border Patrol, Department of Homeland Security, Airport Police/Fire/EMS Services, National Parks and more.

There are numerous reasons why the Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft is now the industry standard worldwide. Not only can it take you where no other vehicle can go, it operates more like an aircraft than a boat, flying 9 inches above the surface. An added bonus is it's constructed so that neither the propellers nor any other part of the craft will strike submerged objects.

You can learn all about Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft and see them in flight today only at Outdoor Demo Booth 19302 ... which is capturing lots of attention!

You may even get to meet some of your fellow firefighters and hear what they say about how their Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft performs the absolute safest and fastest rescue operations - especially in areas other rescue apparatus can't reach, such as shallow water; swift water; thin, broken ice; mudflats and debris-filled flooded areas on land. 

Here's what one recent customer, Chief Tony Young of Oak Island Water Rescue, North Carolina, has to say about the value of their Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft ...

Don't miss this last chance to see for yourself how a hovercraft keeps you above the danger – not in it - so that you can save lives safely.

#FDIC 2021 Features a Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft in action

Firefighters, does your department still rely on ropes, divers, boats and other apparatus for water, ice and mud rescues? Come to FDIC Outdoor Demo Booth 19302 this Thursday through Saturday to experience a Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft in action and see first-hand how it will vastly improve the safety, ease, speed and success of your rescue operations.

Here's one example why first responders prefer hovercraft to other rescue vehicles. In this video, after first responders fail to rescue a stranded family using traditional rescue boats, a Neoteric Rescue Hovercraft does the job - and also rescues the rescuers!

Flat bottom boats and other propeller-driven watercraft are of questionable use in shallow water, swift water, flood, ice and mud rescues, and can pose a serious danger to you and to the lives you’re tasked to save. 

But hovercraft fly 9 inches above the surface - keeping passengers above the danger, not in it - and are constructed so that neither the propellers nor any other part of the craft can strike a submerged object. 

Here's how some of your fellow first responders around the world compare their Neoteric Hovercraft to other rescue vehicles …

Central Fraser Valley Search & Rescue, Canada:

"Our Neoteric 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."

Mansfield Fire Department, Texas USA:

“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 flood water. A hovercraft is the answer to a faster rescue – a safer rescue.” 

WOPR, a national water rescue organization in Poland:

“Regardless of the weather, our hovercraft can fly over water, ice, mud, sand, grass or wetlands – allowing us to get to those places you can’t reach either by boat or by foot. This machine can save people under the most difficult conditions that prevent the use of a helicopter.”

Somervell County Fire Department, Texas USA:

"Our Neoteric hovercraft is very useful for our river rescues when the water moves from too shallow to deep. It hovers 9 inches above the surface so swift water and hidden obstacles don’t affect it. The advantage of the hovercraft is that it can hover in fast, rough water and operate on land, shallow and deep water."

Put Outdoor Demo Booth 19302 on your FDIC priority list and don't miss the chance to see for yourself how Neoteric Hovercraft outperform other rescue apparatus.

Founded in 1960, Neoteric is the most experienced light hovercraft manufacturer in the world, with clientele in 50+ nations. Our innovative reverse thrust system patented worldwide, makes the Neoteric Hovercraft the only hovercraft that can brake and back up - critical in rescue operations.
