Posted by Michelle Howard

Lake Assault Boats, part of Fraser Shipyards, placed a 28-foot vessel into service with the Town of Gibraltar Fire Department located in northern Door County, Wisconsin.

The craft provides emergency response and firefighting services for a large section of shoreline and islands located on Lake Michigan's Green Bay.

The purchase of the boat was funded entirely through the Gibraltar Fire-Rescue Association, a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Placed into service earlier this summer, the boatis designed to respond to a wide range of on-the-water emergencies. It features a full width pilothouse (with 76-inches of interior height), large front and rear doors (for more efficient patient handling), and two side dive doors. The helm station includes twin 12-inch touchscreens that control advanced components, including: forward looking infrared (FLIR), sonar with SideVu and DownVu, chartplotter, and GPS. Such features serve the Gibraltar Fire Department in its emergency response activities.

The boat is powered by twin 300 hp Suzuki outboard engines equipped with one-touch joystick steering. A portable fire pump helps keep deck space open for patient transfers. The reinforced, double plated forward hull section offers added protection against rocks when pulling onto shore.
For the Gibraltar Fire Department selecting a useful, durable, and dependable craft was paramount.
