Four Sealegs boats were handed over today by the New Zealand government to the Fiji National Disaster Management Office.

New Zealand’s Foreign Minister, Gerry Brownlee says the $1.2 million, two-year trial will see four vessels provided to the Fijian authorities along with other emergency equipment, and a training and maintenance programme.

He says the boats do not require infrastructure to launch, which means the emergency responders will be able to get the vessels in the water more quickly and operate more effectively in flooded urban environments.
