Philadephia Area Fireboats


#1

Hello all, I am the Deputy Chief of the Delaware River & Bay Marine Firefighting Task Force. I have enjoyed all the photos I have seen so far. For anyone visiting the Philadelphia area there are three class A fireboats there and one in Wilmington Delaware. For more information please contact me at bcal125@aol.com.

You need to post pics of them!


#3

With all the petro-chemicals on the river, they need the fireboats.

Pics would be cool.


#4

I will try to post some pictures in the near future. Philly’s new boat is named the Independence and has pictures on line elsewhere. Stay safe

Yes that is the Independence she is jet drive and also serves as a large platform for water rescue down river at the Philadelphia Airport. Sorry for the delay in reply.
