Firefighting capabilities are based around the Hale 550 gpm pump, with independent 2.5-in. handline and monitor discharges. Dive rescue capabilities include a 36-in. side dive door, full length rescue rails, and space for two litters in addition to the normal crew of three. The boat measures 17.5 ft. long, with a 7.5 ft. beam and a one ft. draft. It features an Akron Brass fire monitor; ITT Jabsco deck lights; Whelen strobes and siren; and a Motorola fire radio.
