BALTIMORE
Baltimore, Maryland Fireboat 2
"Mayor J. Harold Grady"
July 1990 photo

My interest in Fireboats goes back to this photo and others from that era
at the Firehouse Expos in Baltimore beginning in the early 1980s.
 


July 2007 photo of Baltimore's new boat "John R. Frazier" at the Inner Harbor.

I have always been fascinated by Fireboats.
As I have traveled around the country I have tried to photograph
as many fireboats as I can.  Each boat is different and special.
They are powerful firefighting machines.  They have great histories.
They have battled great fires and saved cities.
They are spectacular and beautiful.
I hope you enjoy these photographs of Fireboats.
Check out more via links on each page. 
Enjoy.

A great book on fireboats is called
"FIREBOATS"
by Paul Ditzel
published in 1989.
This book was very helpful and I highly recommend it.

 

My goal is to photograph and document as many fire boats here as I can during my travels
for you to enjoy.  This one is from Toronto.

Not all fire boats are on the coasts. The Fireboat "Simon Aliotta" is located
on Lake Norman, outside of Charlotte, NC in Cornelius.
December 2015

The Cornelius boat put on a great display for us.

The Savannah, GA Fireboat 1 "Courageous" puts on a
full water display in the Savannah River on April 6, 2016.

the type of incident, time of year, and area. This also allows for
a spare fast boat to be in service at all times.
