NEW FIREBOAT "MARINE 1"

BOSTON CITY FIRE BOAT
"Marine 1"
"John S. Damrell"
The City of Boston has a large, active harbor.
Like many water front cities, it has had fire boats for many years.
Over the years, many large fires were battled by fire boats.
In the 1970's Boston built the "Firefighter"
which has served for nearly 40 years.
The city had several smaller boats as well.
Boston recently replaced the "Firefighter" with a new boat
called the "John S. Damrell" in 2011.

Boston harbor is also protected by the Massport Fire Department
based at Logan International Airport.
