Xtreme Companies, Inc. (OTC BB: XTME) today announced the establishment of its Homeland Security subsidiary "First Responders, Inc." (FRI). Xtreme will market its mission-specific fire and rescue, and patrol boats directly through FRI.

Xtreme Companies CEO Kevin Ryan stated, "The establishment of First Responders for the production of our mission specific emergency and surveillance watercraft, is reflective of the path we began to pursue in 2004. Under the "Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program" (AFGP), administered by the Department of Homeland Security's Office for Domestic Preparedness, we assisted over 40 fire and rescue departments nationwide in submitting their applications for funding requests of fire and rescue boats. We remain optimistic about our chances to begin generating business pursuant to AFGP because fireboats were elevated to Priority One Status last year as compared with 2003 when fire boats were classified under Priority Four Status."

The AFPG assists rural, urban and suburban fire departments throughout the United States. Through the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2004, Congress provided $750 million for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program and transferred administration of the program from FEMA to ODP.
