(INDIANAPOLIS) - Emergency management officials in Marion and Hamilton counties say a new hovercraft will help with rescues on water, snow and ice.
A grant from the department of homeland security will pay for the $60,000 craft, which was bought from a Terre Haute-based company.
Marion County Emergency Management Spokeswoman Debbie Fletcher says the six-passenger hovercraft will also help with emergencies in dams, where rescue boats often get stuck in the water's current.
Training on the hovercraft is expected to begin next month.
