Docked at the North East Marina, East County Marine 1 was
purchased with funds from the NW Counter Terrorism Taskforce
as well as the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.
The boat itself is owned by the
East Erie County Chiefs Association. Fuller, Crescent and
Fairfield, departments which cover a significant amount of
Lake Erie shoreline are the prime operators of the boat.
Department members have received
training from the United States Coast Guard as well as
priceless experience from the membership body that have
owned and operated boats on Lake Erie for their entire
lives. The training is a melting pot of experience from
Lifeguards, boat operators & owners, SCUBA divers, etc.
