Michigan Rescue Concepts Reviews
“Hi Teri and Mark The Seawolf performed FLAWLESSLY!! We have been training with the boat but mainly calm water and some light seas. Yesterday the seas were well over 6′ when we reached the disabled catamaran. The boat handled great in the high seas and maneuvered very well. Everyone was EXTREMELY happy with the boat!! Thank you for the gear and training this spring!! Please share with Marc and Greg!!“

“Hi Guys, Paul from East Grand Lake Fire Department here, just wanted to inform you how your training paid off this weekend. Exactly one week from the training at the Presque Isle Fire Department, we were called for a person through the ice, myself, another responder and Andrew Fournier who just went through your course responded with our airboat. We were able to get to about 50′ of the person through the ice Andrew tied off and was able to get to the guy and using the sling we were able to pull him out after being in the water for approximately 30 minutes. We were able to get him in the airboat and got him to shore where the ambulance was waiting. Fortunately he was just in early stage of hypothermia and will be OK …. Thanks to your training the rescue from the airboat was textbook.”
