FCTRT uses Porta-Bote

The Fayette County Technical Rescue Team uses the unique Porta-Bote to navigate the waterways of Fayette County and the surrounding communities.  The Porta-Bote is a unique folding rescue watercraft that sets up in minutes, weighs less than 75 pounds, is less than 4 inches thick (when folded), and is more durable than inflatable and aluminum rescue boats.  Used worldwide as an extremely portable rescue boat, the Porta-Bote gives the FCTRT an ability to carry and launch a boat where other boats simply wouldn’t be practical.
