Dick and Kathy Manten run this rescue base from Deneysville, which means that this rescue base is officially in the Free State. Due to the nature of call outs, we can only accept crew members who are resident in Deneysville. When we get a call out, our crew are all at the base within 5 minutes and the rescue boat is deployed. For people living out of town, this obviously becomes a problem as their reaction time cannot be quick enough.
