BOSTON CITY FIRE BOATS
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.

In 2016 Boston added another new boat, Marine 2, known as "Father Dan."
This boat is a smaller aluminum outboard boat. 

A Search & Rescue Dive Team boat "Marine 3" the "Captain John Kenney"
was put in service in 2010.

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