Fireboat Delivered to Port of Los Angeles

Thursday, March 27, 2003
The Los Angeles Fire Department has accepted its new fireboat which is en route from Freeland, Wash. to its homeport. The fireboat left March 21, and is expected to take 5 to 6 days. This voyage is the culmination of an eight year long process to create a new generation of marine fire-fighting capability in Los Angeles. Built over an eighteen month period (started on September 11, 2001) by Nichols Brothers Boat Builders of Freeland, the new fireboat was designed by Robert Allan Ltd. of Vancouver, BC.
