The Hollywood VFD is proud to announce the new Raft 7 has arrived. Over a year ago, a Raft Committee was announce to start the replacement process for Raft 7. After numerous meetings and research, it was determined that not just a single unit could meet all of our needs with Water Rescues in Hollywood and the surrounding areas. The Department decided to go with a three tiered system to cover the numerous waterways within our response areas.
1. 15'4" Oceanid RDC Rescue Banana.
2. 12'6" Dib Rapid Response Boat with a 9hp Motor.
3. 17'5" Zodiac MilPro Center console with a 90hp Motor.
Along with all 3 Watercraft, Rescue Squad 7 is fully equipped with numerous water rescue equipment that exceeds the standards.
Over the next several months, Members will be participating in numerous hours of training to familiarize theirselves with these new units and train on Water Rescue Procedures. We are always looking for ways to improve our service to the community and ways to respond to all emergencies within our area.
As always, we want to thank the Community for supporting our 100% Volunteer Department. We are here for you 24/7.
