PORT OF PROVIDENCE MARINE STRIKE TEAM
The Port of Providence and the greater Narragansett Bay area
are protected by a cooperative effort known as the Port of Providence
Marine Strike Team.

The strike team involves four major fire departments including
Providence, East Providence, Warwick, and Cranston.
Each of these departments operate MetalCraft Firestorm 30 Fire Boats.

Three of the boats came in 2008 and the fourth in 2009.

A fifth boat, Marine 5, was added in 2014 with the North Kingston
Fire Rescue Moose Boats Fireboat.
 

Marine 1 is Providence
Marine 2 is Cranston
Marine 3 is East Providence
Marine 4 is Warwick
Marine 5 is North Kingston




The new Providence marine unit is located just north of the new bridge on I-195


In the shadow of the old power plant



Metalcraft built (4) identical Firestorm 30 fireboats that have been delivered to the
Narragansett Bay area, including Providence, East Providence, Cranston, and Warwick.
