Newton County Rescue Boat Fund

$535 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 6 people in 13 months

We are in need of a replacement for our aging Jet Boat. It has served us for many years but time along with wear and tear from all the calls over the years has taken its toll. 

When dealing with flood waters, our inflatable boats just do not have the power and are very susceptible to damage from debris, logs, and even barbed wire fences that are hidden by the flooding. Our current jet boat has been in service for many years but despite our best efforts, its age is getting the best of it.

We are raising money to purchase a new jet boat that will be a wider bottom so it is more stable in the rough flood waters as well as have more power to help us safely navigate those conditions and allow us to better assist the citizens of our area during these emergencies.

Newton County Rescue and Recovery (NCRR) Was formed in the late 1990s under the name Newton County Search and Rescue. We were formed to provide support to our local Fire, EMS, and Law Enforecement agencies/departments in times of need by providing our specially trained personnel and equipment. Our team members are trained in water rescue, dive operations, wilderness and urban search and rescue, and Incident Command/Emergency Management Operations. Due to time and budget restrictions, most local agencies are unable to properly train their personnel in these areas in addition to their normal training requirements. Since our team does not train in firefighting, law enforcement, or EMS services, we are able to focus our training on the skills we specialize in and provide our skills to the other area departments. 

We are a 100% volunteer agency and we are a 501(c)(3) approved non-profit so donations may be tax deductible.

For more information about our team, visit us online at http://www.NewtonCountyRescue.org or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/NewCoRescue. If you would like to contact us directly, you may do so via either our facebook page or website.

Thank you for your time and support!
