The Field Operations Center is responsible for maintaining and scheduling a fleet of airboats, saltwater boats and other vehicles. In addition, we maintain an inventory of field and safety equipment such as: spotlights, personal flotation devices, whistles, fire extinguishers, flares, first aid kits, blankets, VHS radios, GPS units, flashlights, signal horns - a safety kit and accompanying tool kit appropriate for that boat is required when the boat is checked out.
Along with following boat safety, a Float Plan is MANDATORY for all field crews using either airboats or marine boats, and they must be filed at least 24 hrs in advance.
