Plan B offers maritime evacuation plans for Manhattan residents, businesses

NEW YORK Sept. 8, 2016 Plan B Marine today announced the inception of its maritime evacuation service from Manhattan. "It's for anyone who can't afford to be caught in the stampede off the island if critical infrastructure fails or in the event of an attack," said Plan B Marine President and CEO, Patricia Dowhie.

The evacuation service, available through arrangement at secure locations on the east and west side, provides storage, maintenance and training in the operation of coast guard class SAFE boats that subscribers pilot to their own select disembarkation points if and when there's a disaster. Plan B Marine SAFE boats activate by a security code, track via GPS and are recovered and re-readied by Plan B Marine once subscribers have gotten where they need to go.

Favored by law enforcement, military, fire safety professionals and first responders worldwide, SAFE boats are craft of choice at Plan B Marine. Their ergonomic design, reinforced aluminum self righting hulls and foam collars are built to withstand the most rigorous conditions.

Should Manhattan cease to be a tenable place of residence or business operation, CFO Chris Dowhie believes Plan B Marine offers the most secure, reliable option in a disaster. "There are a handful of bridges and tunnels," he points out. "If mass transit is at a standstill, maritime evacuation is the only real alternative."

Plan B Marine begins public display of its boats in marinas around Manhattan starting Sept 9th, 09/09/2016. Test boarding and test outings are by appointment that may be made through Plan B Marine at 718-753-1455 or at its website www.planbmarine.com.
