I was not aware that the mats and floatable wheelchair are available from the city of Deerfield Beach. I contacted the city of Deerfield Beach and the Director of Communications Rebecca Medina Stewart informed me both the mat and a floatable wheelchair are available from the city for several years now, and they are well used.
