Water Rescue Foundation
The Water Rescue Foundation was founded by retired U.S. Army Captain Moses West. It is driven by a single goal: to provide clean and safe drinking water to people in need using Mr. West’s patented atmospheric water generation (AWG) technology.
AWG machines extract humidity from the air to produce up to 2,200 gallons/8,400 liters of clean water per day. Water produced by AWG units is 99.9% pure and exceeds all EPA requirements. AWG machines are powered by electricity, diesel, solar, natural gas, or methane. The internal diesel generator can operate for five days without interruption.
The Water Rescue Foundation is currently spearheading a project in Flint, Michigan to utilize AWG technology to provide an alternative public water source for Flint residents. AWG technology has already been successful in supplying over 130,000 gallons of drinking water to the citizens of Vieques, Puerto Rico from January-June 2018, in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
The Amphicruiser Rescue
The “Amphicruiser Rescue” is an unprecedented and first of its kind Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) that navigates both land and water with ease. It’s safe and stable, even in major rivers and estuaries. Designed and manufactured by DAT Netherlands and Amphibious Solutions, the Amphicruiser Rescue ERV is a global solution for first responders from the Arctic to the Caribbean.
With the marked increase in coastal flooding in recent years, the Amphicruiser Rescue is more relevant and necessary than ever before.
