Excess of 4,800  GPM from two pumps

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.
