Boat Team

MFPD launched the Boat Team in 2010 to better protect our District’s shoreline on the Meramec River.  The team’s rigorous initial and ongoing training includes mastering the use of the District’s rescue boats and specific skills such as working in flooded areas and strong currents, and bringing victims aboard the vessel.  MFPD has one rigid hull boat in addition to two inflatable boats that can be carried into the scene.  The Boat Team is deployed for boat and swimming accidents and missing persons searches.
