Two new flood rescue boats have been added to the fleets of the South West State Emergency Service (SES).
The boats will be based at Busselton and Australind SES units, which have 83 volunteers that have attended more than 70 incidents in the past year.
Volunteers helped design the boats to fit their own needs.
More than $300,000 was spent on the 6.4 metre boats, which include communication and rescue gear, such as satellite phones and high frequency radios.
They will be able to be used for incidents such as attending flooded areas and rescuing people in open water.
Volunteers can transport two crew and up to four passengers on the new boats.
Emergency Services Minister Stephen Dawson said they were custom built to volunteer needs to ensure they had the capacity to take on any incident they were called to.
"The boats are fantastic additions to Busselton and Australind SES units, which boast a combined 83 volunteers," Mr Dawson said.
