Squadron Emergency Response Assistance Team


The Squadron Emergency Response Assistance Team is a sanctioned arm of the local Power Squadron whose mission is to render volunteer assistance to local fire departments, law enforcement and other agencies in the event of a water related emergency. The duties are to provide a Team of qualified and experienced boaters with knowledge of local waters who are willing to donate time and effort to assist in the event of an emergency. These may include water rescue, water search and rescue, water related patrols and help in securing an area in the event of an emergency.


Many of the standards developed by the Team may require that the members have more specialized or additional equipment that the average boater would have on board, such as special identifying life jackets, identifying lights and flags and expanded first aid kits.


We Also provide Safety Patrols for Water Related Events including


  • On the Water Parades

  • Boat Races Security Perimeters

  • Canoe/Kayak Races/Events

  • Fleet Blessing

  • All Water Events
