RIBCRAFT RIBs Provide Rescue Relief in China

Marblehead, MA, June 6, 2008 – RIBCRAFT proudly announces that a fleet of RIBCRAFT RIBs played a critical role in the China earthquake rescue efforts.

The 15’7” RIBCRAFT 4.8s, equipped specifically for such responses, carried the first rescuers to the epicenter of the quake. The RIBCRAFTs provided the only means of access for the first responders as all roads leading to the area had been destroyed or blocked. Hailed as unsung heroes, the RIBCRAFT RIBs provided continuous access to the devastated region.

The RIBs were originally ordered and distributed to Fire Departments in the Chengdu Region by Ancom Systems, an international supplier of rescue equipment for first responders, in 2007. The company worked closely with RIBCRAFT to develop a configuration that would meet their customer’s needs and the regions geographic challenges.

About RIBCRAFT RIBCRAFT designs and builds safe, durable, performance oriented rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) that fulfill the most demanding professional and recreational applications. A leading supplier of professional grade RIBs for safety professionals, military agencies, yacht clubs, and recreational boaters throughout the world, RIBCRAFT offers RIBs starting at 15’ capable of fulfilling most any mission. www.ribcraftusa.com
