Rex's Cycle works with Rep. Rogers to supply Jet Skis in Pulaski CO.
Columbia firm makes loan to Pulaski Co. Rescue Squad for a year.
WASHINGTON, DC. U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers announced today that the Somerset-Pulaski County Rescue Squad recently received two Kawasaki Jet Skis, furnished by Rex's Cycle of Columbia, KY, that will enhance rescue capabilities along Pulaski County's waterways and coastlines.
"We are delighted that Rex's Cycle Shop in Columbia was able to work with us to make the loan of this Kawasaki JET SKI possible," said Maureen Healey, Executive Director of the Personal Watercraft Industry Association. "This personal watercraft will enhance the Somerset-Pulaski County Rescue Squad's on-water capabilities and make the community safer."
Boating, tourism industries are mainstays
"The boating and tourism industries are the mainstays of our local economy, bringing over 500,000 visitors to the area annually," said Rogers. "These Jet Skis will greatly enhance the Rescue Squad's ability to provide assistance in the event of an accident or emergency.
The Jet Skis are on loan from Kawasaki to the Somerset-Pulaski County Rescue Squad for one year. Personal watercraft loan programs were launched by industry manufacturers in 1989 and made available to Members of the Congressional Boating Caucus starting in 2005. To date, manufacturers have loaned approximately 15,000 vessels to local police, fire, rescue and marine mammal research organizations across the country."
Vessels come through Congressional Personal Watercraft Loan Programs
The vessels were made available to the Rescue Squad through the Congressional Personal Watercraft Loan Program, which is sponsored by boating industry manufacturers. Congressman Rogers requested the boat loan on behalf of the Somerset-Pulaski County Rescue Squad. The Jet Skis were delivered on Thursday, May 4.
Rogers added, "With summer quickly approaching and boating traffic along Lake Cumberland increasing, delivery of these Jet Skis couldn't come at a better time. Thanks to this generous loan program, Pulaski County's waterways just got a little safer."
