The two Marine Auxiliary Rescue Craft (MARC), 154 and 164, were taken out of service at least four years ago. Not Zodiacs, they were Profile Series boats manufactured by AB Inflatables with rigid hulls and inflatable hull collars.

One of the two were destroyed during sandy and never replaced.
The policy, if I remember correctly, was for them to operate together.

Further historical note:  the two MARC vessels were Staten Island Borough Command assets, not components of Marine Operations.

Thanks for the info. Regarding SQ8 going into the first due areas of E167, 164, 168, 151 - are you saying that when there is a pin job in those areas, the Squad is automatically assigned to the run as well? If so, why is that? Thanks

On opening day, they went in place of R5(who would then go on confirmation).  By the 11th, they were going in addition to R5.
As for why?  Theyíre closer.

That was a misunderstanding , Sq-8 was never meant to replace R-5 on the report of a pin job. The Rescues are always assimged to the initial report of a pin. It was corrected at the CO office. But yes ,S-8 is the only Squad that is assimged on a initial report of a pin. All other only respond on the confirmed pin. Remember , the squads first priority is as a engine company.
