Medina International Holdings, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Harbor Guard Boats, received an order for a Defender 21 dive rescue boat from the Bartow County (Ga.) Fire Department.

"We are pleased to introduce our new Defender 21 model," vice president of sales Tim Spooner said in a statement. "This boat will be used for dive and rescue purposes on Allatoona Lake. This vessel will be purchased using Georgia Emergency Management funds received through the U.S. Homeland Security [Department]."

Medina International Holdings also announced the delivery of a Firehawk 2628 fire rescue boat to the Ottawa County (Mich.) Sheriff's Office.

"This boat will be used for fire suppression, dive and rescue purposes on Lake Michigan and in mutual aid efforts with area townships," company president Daniel Median said in a statement. "As the Firehawk models become a primary choice for fire rescue and dive teams, we continually strive to improve quality, productivity and customer service on these models."

Medina International also produces boats for the recreational marine market.
