Firestorm High-Speed CBRN Ready Fireboats
All of MetalCraft Marine's FireStorm fireboats may be equipped with chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) defense options for advanced threat readiness.
"The use of CBRN sensors, detectors, surveillance, and alarms is a vital part of the defense strategy in preparing an installation CBRN defense plan."
Benefits of CBRN Fireboats
MetalCraft Marine CBRN equipped fireboats can actively:
- SENSE for continuous point and stand-off detection for prompt situation appraisal.
- SHIELD the expedition from exposure with built-in respiratory and ocular protection,
- SHAPE water-side battlespace with both situation management and response capability, and
- SUSTAIN with decontamination facilities for individuals and equipment, and provide front-line medical response and patient handling.
CBRN vessels are usually managed by Fire Departments due to the Fire Services' extensive Hazmat and Special Operations training.
Funding and Assistance
Acquisition of necessary CBRN defense equipment is an integral part of preparing and improving CBRN defenses. CBRN vessels are mandated under several FEMA Grant Programs and USCG Risk Management Plans.
