FIRE BOAT 1

BALTIMORE CITY FIRE BOATS
The City of Baltimore has a large and busy port.
Over the years there have been many large fires along the waterfront.
Baltimore City has had many fire boats over the years.
When I first photographed the boats in the 1980's and 1990's
they were painted orange & white, as was most of the fire apparatus
at that time.
Apparatus and the boats were painted red and white in the 2000's.
Today the city maintains a reduced, but modern Marine Division.
