14/05/2014 - Jersey Fire and Rescue Boat
Jersey Fire News Article
Jersey Fire and Rescue proudly displayed the latest joint development between Humber and DPM Trading at the ‘Jersey Boat Show’ where 36000 people went through the gates. There was a huge amount of interest in their new high spec boat amongst spectators.
Jersey Fire and Rescue service has provided the island with an inshore rescue resource since 1960 and unveiled their new design for 2014.
The craft was the result of many months of development and was based on our standard 16i Workboat (A variation that is used by The British Antarctic survey) but with some Fire and Rescue variation to help meet the demands of inshore-rescue word. Our work included using the most robust ‘denier’ fabrics throughout, a heavy duty transom to accommodate the Service’s need for a 50HP engine and equipment carrying A frame amongst the inclusion of many other features including a GPS chart plotter, VHF, AIS and a ‘Tetra’ system that allows the vessel to communicate with other community services such as Police, Ambulance Service and Beach Guard.
A custom design stainless steel ‘fairlead’ made by DPM Trading provides the stem with a strong-point through which the anchor warp and painters can run. An equipment stowage pod (moulded in yellow fibreglass) provides a sturdy but light-weight working platform. The deck locker provides stowage for the anchor, chain and 100m of warp. The equipment pod also provides housing for navigational electronics and dry storage for sensitive equipment and stores.
The vessel will now undergo testing and be inspected to ensure it fully complies with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s ‘Rescue Boat Code.
