CAPE COD AREA
FIRE / RESCUE BOATS
Cape Cod is a bent arm shaped peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean,
Nantucket Sound, Buzzards Bay, and Cape Cod Bay in the southeastern
part of Massachusetts.

To the south of Cape Cod are the islands of
Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

Numerous fire / rescue departments protect the communities on the
Cape and Islands. Each of these departments have salt water bays
and fresh water ponds that they are responsible for.

There are a few actual "fireboats" in the area, but most of the departments
use boats for rescue purposes.

Boats are listed here by community / department name
beginning with Cape Cod communities, followed by the Islands,
and Plymouth County.
