Protector Targa 28 Used in Fire Department Rescue

Monday, December 27, 2010

Protctor USA announced that its Targa 28 played a critical role in a recent on-water rescue by the Alameda County Fire Department. Within days of its delivery, the Protector Targa 28 employed by the Department’s Special Operations Division as Rescue Boat 11 proved to be an asset for rapid search and rescue operations. On October 6, 2010, the vessel supported the rescue of a man overboard in frigid and turbulent waters near the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in San Francisco, Calif. The Coast Guard received the distress call and turned to the Alameda County Fire Department’s Special Operations team for rapid response. In minutes, Rescue Boat 11 was on the scene to aid the man and safely transfer him to a Coast Guard Station Golden Gate motor lifeboat where he could receive medical attention.

Engineered for performance, safety and seaworthiness in all sea and weather conditions, the Targa 28 has the versatility to serve as a recreational sport cruiser, yacht tender, sailing coach and support boat, and multifunctional commercial patrol or safety vessel. The vessel provides search and rescue teams with comfortable high-speed handling in rough waters to greatly reduce crew fatigue. Protector boats offer dock and boat-to-boat boarding and a fully enclosed cabin with deck space for up to 10 people.
