Ocean City Welcomes New Fireboat

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - The newest vessel in the Ocean City Fire Department's fleet is prepared to take on the beach town's waters.

Fireboat One is the department's first vessel designed from the ground up, to support daily missions on the area's waterways. Built specifically for use in Ocean City , the boat's most unique feature is the fact that it can maneuver in just 4-6 inches of water.

"Much of our bay is very shallow and unfortunately many of our accidents are in shallow water. It's probably one of its only kind that can be such a good response capable craft in only six inches of water. Very unique. It also allows us to respond and stay away from other boats," Fire Chief Chris Larmore said.

We're told crews are just about to finish up training, and they should have the boat ready to go very soon.
