Dealership Donates Hovercraft to Maine Fire Department

#DealershipsGivingBack: The Windham Fire Department in Maine has a new way to respond to water rescues thanks to a generous donation.

An RV dealership donated a four-seat hovercraft to the department.

At first, the owner of Lee’s Family Trailer Sales planned to sell the vehicle until he saw how useful it can be for ice rescues, and donated it.

The Windham fire chief says the donation will go a long way.

“Especially this time of year, when ice conditions are not quite suitable for another device, this certainly will be a vehicle that will get us out there safely and get anybody back to shore safely,” Windham Fire Deputy Chief Brent Libby said.

He says the department will first train how to use the hovercraft before they start using it during emergency situations.
