BUFFALO FIRE BOAT



Buffalo, New York
"Edward M. Cotter"
Built at Crescent Shipyard in Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1900.
The 118 foot, 24 ft beam, 10'10" draft boat has a re-enforced steel waterline
enabling the boat to serve as an ice breaker keeping the Buffalo River and port navigable
during the cold winter months.   

The boat has 4 V-12 diesel engines powering its 9,000 gpm pumps.
The boat is currently funded by a non-profit foundation
while still serving the city when needed.

OLDEST FIREBOAT
In 1996 the Cotter was designated a National Historic Landmark.
It is the oldest serving fire boat in the world in service for over 112 years!
