Diamondhead Fire Department Gets New Rescue Boat

The Diamondhead Fire Department now has a new life saving tool. The Zodiac boat making company out of Stevenson, Maryland donated a rescue boat to the department.

Chief Dennis Westbrook says after Hurricane Katrina his department saw a big need for a boat. When the storm ended, firefighters had to borrow a boat to rescue 80 people.

Zodiac learned the department was in need, and offered them the boat worth $5,000.
