"Fireboat 2"
"Mayor J. Harold Grady"
Built in 1960 - Served until 2008
85' LOA - 6,000 gpm

My interest in fireboats goes back to this photo and others from that era
at the Firehouse Expos in Baltimore beginning in the early 1980s.

FIRE 1 BOAT

I have always been interested in fireboats.
Throughout history, a wonderful variety of powerful firefighting vessels have
protected the waterfronts and battled major fires in many of the larger cities.

Typically each fireboat was designed for the port it served.
In some cases boats were fully staffed and ready to respond at all times.
Others, would only be staffed when needed.
Either way, when fireboats go to work they are a powerful force.

In recent years, particularly since 2001, many of the older fireboats have
been replaced by newer, more powerful, more sophisticated boats that
utilize all the modern technologies available. Some are capable of more
pumping capacity than 2 or 3 previous boats.

With Homeland Security grants, more and more fireboats have been
built for the smaller cities and towns that previously did not have this
resource available to them.

As I have traveled around the country I have attempted to photograph
as many of these old and new firefighting and rescue vessels as I can.
Each has its own unique design, features, and histories which make
this "hobby" as interesting as it is. Documenting these vessels in
photographs has become a passion and I continue to look forward to
whatever comes next.

I hope you find this feature informative and enjoyable.
Please let me know if you have some information about
any of the boats, see typos, or know of something new.

Enjoy!

New York City, NY
"Marine Co 1"
"John D. McKean"
Built in 1954 by John H. Mathis Co. in Camden, NJ
129' LOA - 30' beam - 9' draft
19,000 gpm

One of my earlier, and favorite fireboat photos, showing the FDNY Marine Co 1
at the Marine Division HQ, Pier A, in the Hudson River, near the tip of Manhattan in 1986.

 

New York City, NY
"Marine Co 9"
"Fire Fighter"
Built in 1938 by United Shipyards, Staten Island, NY - served until 2010
134' LOA - 32' beam - 9' draft
20,000 gpm

There have been many famous and historic fireboats.
Perhaps none stands out more than "America's Fireboat" the FDNY "Fire Fighter"
The powerful diesel-electric boat battled many of the biggest fires in the
New York City metropolitan area.

FIREBOAT FIRE FIGHTER MUSEUM
The "Fire Fighter" has retired and is currently located at the eastern end of
Long Island at Greenport.
 

I had the opportunity to go aboard the "Fire Fighter" a few times.
This was me in July 2011 next to one of the big deckguns.
The boat was recently retired at the time and docked at the
FDNY Marine Division Headquarters at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. 

 

"FIREBOATS"
by Paul C. Ditzel
published in 1989.
A great book on fireboats.
This book was very helpful and I highly recommend it.

 

City of Los Angeles, CA
"Marine Co 2"
"Ralph J. Scott"
Built in 1925 - Served 78 years until 2003
99' 3" LOA - 19' Beam - 9' draft - 152 gross tons
Originally 10,200 gpm - upgraded to 18,600 gpm
Shown in its boathouse at LA City Station 112

I was fortunate enough to have gotten a tour of this classic
historic fireboat on a visit to LA in 2000.

 

Toronto, Ontario
"Fireboat 334"
"Wm. Lyon Mackenzie"
Built in 1963 by Russel Brothers Ltd, Owen Sound, Ontario. Commissioned in 1964.
Major refurbishing in 2004
81' LOA - 20' beam - 7' draft
7,000 gpm pumping capacity - 54' aerial tower
Photo August 2013

While the Photo Feature is called "Fireboats Across the USA"
that by no means limits my desire to check out fireboats anywhere and everywhere.
Toronto, Ontario's fireboats are located on the waterfront of the Inner Harbor,
off Lake Ontario, just a short walk from the Toronto Blue Jays ballpark at
Rogers Centre, under the CN Tower.

 

Cornelius-Lemley, NC
"Fireboat 4"
"Simon Aliotta"
Built in 2010 by MetalCraft Marine, Kingston, Ontario.
Firestorm 30 - 33' 5" LOA - 8' beam - 18" draft
3,300 gpm
Photo Dec 2015

Not all fireboats are on salt water.  Many are on the larger lakes.
The "Simon Aliotta" is on Lake Norman, in the general Charlotte, NC area.

Many times I will take photos of boats without assistance.
Sometimes I luck out and make a good contact with someone
who truly shows off their boat as the Cornelius-Lemay folks did.

The Search Continues

Savannah, GA
"Marine 1"
"Courageous"
Built in 2015 by MetalCraft Marine, Kingston, Ontario.
FireStorm 50 - 50' 5" LOA - 16' beam
7,300 GPM

The ongoing search for fireboats has increased in recent years with some trips
specifically designed to locate and photograph a number of boats.
 We added a number of boats in from Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina,
Georgia, and Florida in November-December 2015.

Savannah fireboat "Courageous" at the dock.

The Search Continues
During March - April 2016 our journey brought us down to southern Florida including
fireboats at Miami and Miami-Dade County.  Then across the Florida panhandle to see
boats at Panama City, Niceville, Pensacola.  Into Alabama we found Orange Beach and
Mobile boats. As we headed back, a stop in Savannah was rewarded by a grand water
display by the Savannah Marine 1.

Sometimes you find yourself in the right place at the right time.
Here the Savannah "Courageous" is putting on a full water display
on the Savannah River.

Fireboats in Victoria, British Columbia, September 2016

 On the Road Again 2016!
We set out across the country in our RV in the Fall of 2016.
The primary mission of the trip was to photograph as many fireboats
as we could find. The trip was extremely successful with over
90 more boats being added to the list!

We found boats in middle America, Western Canada, all the way down
the USA west coast, and on the way back east.

Along the way we met some great people who shared their
special boats with me so that I could share them with you.

 

Port of Portland Airport, OR
"Rescue Boat 80 "
Built in 2000's by North River - Almar
27' LOA - Jet Drive - 250 gpm

The folks at the Portland, OR Airport ARFF department operate this boat on the
Columbia River adjacent to the airport.  It is designed primarily to respond to
any aircraft incident in the river.  The boats is staffed by personnel at the
Airport station who respond over to the boathouse if needed.

The crew was awesome and took me along for a ride on the Columbia River.
Very cool!

power of black and white images. Sometimes even recent photos
look better in black and white.
