Caption:

To the rescue: Cambridge firemen are learning how to handle their newest life-saving equipment, a Hoverguard, which glides over water and ice on a cushion of air as does its big brother, the Hovercraft. Capt. Brian Pinder, 35, watches as firefighter [illegible] Tinker, 37, takes his turn manipulating the craft. The Cambridge force plans to use it year-round to get to mishaps.
