THREE DECK BOAT TRAILER FIELD TESTED
In September and October 2016 the State of North Carolina put several of the DLX-3BT trailers and to the test for the first time during true operational use from record rainfall and flooding. Water Rescue and Special Operations teams from Fayetteville, Buncombe County and Greensboro Fire Departments successfully rescued 138 people within 48 hours. Then just a couple weeks later 2,300+ people were rescued from record flooding across central and eastern North Carolina after Hurricane Matthew added heavy rainfall to what was an already overly saturated water basin. The DLX-3BT Water Rescue Trailer proved itself a valuable tool to improve operations.
