Fast Response Vessel (FRV)

FRVs are 46 ft. in length and have a 25-knot speed of advance. These vessels are designed to transit and deploy equipment quickly, but due to limited onboard storage and accommodations are not capable of sustaining response operations without additional support resources. FRVs can operate in near-shore, coastal and inland environments up to 50 nautical miles from shore.
