Firefighters on the Isle of Wight have been getting to grips with the newly purchased fire boat that will serve and provide fire cover on the Island. The exciting training was undertaken by crews for Freshwater Fire station following a secret purchase by the Isle of Wight council.
The boat is thought to be the only boat in use on the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service. H79boatie1 will be moored off Colwell Bay once training is complete and manned by a select number of Freshwater’s regular crew. Other firefighters are expected to take up training to man the vessel by the end of next week.
