Sunrise, Fla. (April 19, 2018)– Life Cell Marine Safetytoday announces their partnership with Silver Ships, Inc., an aluminum boat-building organization headquartered in Theodore, Ala., in outfitting a fire/rescue demo boat in collaboration with several other vendors.
Life Cell Marine Safety has created a buoyant device that ensures marine safety equipment is safely stored and easy to access during an incident. Silver Ships’ demo boat is equipped with Life Cell’s Yachtsman model, a buoyant device and ditch kit combo. The demo boat’s safety equipment will be stored in the Life Cell flotation device, which will reduce the chance of the items being lost or unable to be found in time should the vessel’s occupants need to abandon the boat. The flotation device also provides a stable platform from which to operate safety equipment.
“We are thrilled that Silver Ships has chosen to install Life Cell on their latest fire/rescue demo boat and in doing so, adopt best practices for storage of marine safety equipment to keep the crew safe,” said Jenny Aiken, CEO of Life Cell Marine Safety.
The demo boat is outfitted for firefighting, dewatering sinking boats, providing medical treatment, evacuations and search and rescue operations. The vessel showcases the capabilities and craftsmanship of both Silver Ships and Life Cell and how each participating vendors’ parts and components enhance the vessel’s safety and ability.
“We are proud to have Life Cell Marine Safety's products on board to add an extra level of safety to the demo boat,” said Steven Clarke, co-owner at Silver Ships. “Fire/rescue vessel operators often face challenging situations, and including these safety products can give extra peace of mind while they perform their missions.”
The demo boatwill debut April 23, 2018 at FDIC Internationalin Indianapolis, exhibition booth 9247, where conference attendees can tour the vessel. It will also be at the SEAFCAnnual LeadershipConference in Montgomery, Ala. June 25 – 29. Throughout the year, Silver Ships will transport the demo boat and make multiple stops at trade shows and customers' headquarters for customer interaction and test drive opportunities.
