Emergency Vehicles

Up until February 1997, Schoharie County had to rely on borrowed rescue equipment in time of emergency situations, some of them ineffective. Through donations and a state grant, the County obtained a 5-person Hovercraft. The vehicle, capable of traveling safely over a variety of surfaces, including land, water, and ice, will expedite the response time to victims. The Hovercraft is deployed by the Sheriff's Office and the Fire Service.
