Pittsburgh seeks grant to buy hovercraft for river emergencies
from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Pittsburgh residents may see an emergency hovercraft zipping across the top of the three rivers this summer. The city is seeking a Department of Homeland Security grant to buy a new hovercraft that will allow river rescue personnel to address two problems: How to safely approach riverbanks without puncturing their regular boats and how to deploy during water emergencies when the rivers are iced.
