     The Borough of Westville is situated along the banks of the Delaware River in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Westville has a large recreational boating population along with many water front homes and businesses. Fire Boat 7's primary response area includes Big Timber Creek, and the Delaware River area located within Gloucester County. The vessel is special called occasionally by neighboring communities up and down the Delaware due to its size and maneuverability. Unlike the larger fire boats from Philadelphia, Wilmington and Camden, Fire Boat 7 is able to access the smaller tributaries that feed the Delaware River. Fire Boat 7 was purchased through an AFG grant back in 2005. The original fire boat was totaled in a 2009 incident and was replaced with the current vessel. Further information and specifications can be obtained from the Harbor Guard website, or by contacting Westville Fire Chief Eric Farley.
