NY Firefighting Craft


Californian builder Moose Boats has delivered a new firefighting craft, Marine 1, to New York’s Rochester Fire Department (RFD), whose jurisdiction covers more than 1,000 seasonal and transient slips.


Constructed to the specs of Moose Boats’ M2-38 series, Marine 1 features a length of 11.58m, a breadth of 4.27m, draught of 559mm and a displacement of just under 11tonnes. The boat is powered by twin Cummins 6.7L turbo diesel engines, rated 317kW apiece.


The cabin has been configured with: three shock-mitigating crew seats; an incident command/navigation station; an integrated deck level head enclosure; and a 2.1m patient bench, with emergency/medical equipment stowed below. This area is also home to three multifunction navigational screens, Simrad-supplied chart plotters and a FLIR thermal imaging camera.


The fire pump has a capacity of 6,820litres per minute. Weatherproof deck boxes on the fore and aft decks house the firefighting foam plus additional valves, nozzles and firefighting-related hardware.


Additionally, a heavy-duty push knee has been added to Marine 1 for extra protection when the boat makes contact with larger vessels and piers. Moose Boats says: “A combination ladder allows for firefighters to disembark off the bow in beach landing scenarios, and to facilitate dive and rescue operations from the stern.”
