COUNTY OKS FUNDS FOR SAFETY AIDS
Bonner County Daily Bee
Several times a year, Bonner County Marine Deputies are dispatched to help errant boaters or kayakers whether or not they are in an emergency situation. In order to provide aid quickly, Marine Division Lieutenant, Douglas McGeachy appealed to county commissioners to approve a grant request for forward looking infrared cameras.
FLIR, as they’re called, will be gyro-stabilized and mounted on county vessels that serve Priest Lake and Lake Pend Oreille. Gyro-stabilized means that the cameras can compensate when the vessel is pitching and rolling with the waves.
