SAN BERNARDINO, CA--(Marketwire - August 15, 2007) - Medina International Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: MIHI) delivered a 15 foot fire rescue boat to the New Fairfield, Connecticut Volunteer Fire Department, Squantz Engine Company in late June of this year. Assistant Fire Chief Peter Benzinger addressed a personal letter of thank you to Medina, expressing his satisfaction with the boat.

Daniel Medina, President of Medina International Holdings, Inc. commented, "We were very pleased to receive such high praise from the Squantz Engine Company. We know our boats are the best available in the market, but to get such a positive endorsement really validates our efforts."
