MIAMI-DADE COUNTY FIRE BOAT 2
and several smaller boats.

Miami-Dade County Fireboat
"Fireboat 2"
2009 MetalCraft FireStorm 36
39' 2" LOA  -  13' Beam  -  Draft 22"
39 Knots
Excess of 4,800  GPM from two pumps
Approx 70 gallons of AFFF, 4 deckguns
 

This boat, and other Miami-Dade boats are located on the
west end of Dodge Island under the NE 6th Street / Port Blvd bridges
at the Port of Miami facilities including the cruise ship dock and
container ship facilities.  The Miami-Dade boats are within sight
of the City of Miami Fireboat, but Miami-Dade has a much larger
response area along 84 miles of coastline and an estimated area of
approx 700 square miles including all of Biscayne Bay and an area off shore.

The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue staffs its Fireboat 1 with 4 personnel
who are fully trained to do firefighting, ALS EMS, Search & Rescue,
Dive Rescue, and Haz Mat mitigation.

Fireboat 2 is currently stationed with Fireboat 1 but may
be relocated further north in the near future once sufficient
personnel are trained and assigned.
 

UPDATE DEC 2017
It appears that this boat, originally Fireboat 2, has in fact been relocated
north to a marina at Haulover Park, near Miami-Dade Fire Station 21
at 10500 Collins Ave.  It now displays as Fireboat 21.

There may also have been a change with Fireboat 1. It appears to have
been reassigned as Fireboat 73 and may have been relocated farther south.
