Through our Norwegian distributor Hode over Vann AS, Sortland Brann- og Redning has ordered a RescueRunner system for their operations in north western part Norway.
Sortland Brann- og Redning is located in Vestrålen just north of Lofoten. The coastal community has a lot of sea activity and the environment is characterized by many fjords, straits and harbours. Rough weather conditions is common in the area and therefore they find the RescueRunner as the ultimate SAR system as it can reach difficult and shallow waters. There are also large tidal differences in the area which make the launching procedure of other standard boats less efficient compared to the RescueRunner system that can be launched in different ways and in different locations depending on the situation.
