I have volunteered for the U.S. Water Patrol for over 11 years now and also for the USWP Mounted Patrol Team.for 2 years In that time we have helped so many people and have done so much from snow storms to hurricanes to disasters so many over the years that it would be hard to list here. All members are volunteers no-one is paid we do this because it's our calling to help others
No matter how bad it is we are their when needed. I for one am very proud to be with them and to help my friends,Family, and the people of this state and country check them out http://uswaterpatrol.webs.com/ and http://uswpmountedpatrol.webs.com/

I was out on the Ohio River with my family My wife and 4 children when our boat broke down. the part of the river we were on is not used by many boaters so we set waiting for another boater come by and help After waiting over an hour and a half I used the radio to call for help I tried the Coast Guard and the Police but could not get them However I did get the U.S. Water Patrol They responded very quickly when they got their they were very polite and helpful they towed us back to the boat ramp helped my load the boat on the trailer. They never asked for any money for helping. We thought they were part of the Government or the State I did not know they where all volunteers and used there own money and boats to do this for people until I looked them up. That is why I'm writing this I think they are a great group of people and are very much needed and glad they are around.
