Ticonderoga Fire Department Chief Jeff Burns and Commissioner Calvin Cross stand with the company’s new rescue boat. The craft was donated by Snug Harbor Marina.
continued The new craft has already been called out for an emergency response, rescuing a pair of rock climbers from the base of Rogers Rock on Lake George recently. The Hague Fire Department assisted.
The department boat is kept at the Ti fire station and launches, as needed, from state boat launches on Lake George, Lake Champlain, Eagle Lake and Putt’s Pond.
“Snug Harbor went above and beyond in helping us,” Burns said. “They saw a need in the department and they stepped up to help. We really appreciate everything they do.”
Calvin Cross, Ticonderoga Fire District commissioner, agreed.
“The fire commissioners are very happy with the boat and with the donation,” Cross said. “Money is tight and we now have a very nice rescue boat at very little cost. Snug Harbor deserves a lot of credit.”
