Moose Boats, a boat designer and manufacturer in the San Francisco Bay Area, delivered a M2-37 Catamaran Fire Rescue Boat to West Pierce Fire and Rescue in University Place, WA. The new 2,000 Gallon Per Minute rated 37 foot vessel is the most powerful M2 Series fire fighting boat that Moose Boats has built to date. The all aluminum catamaran is powered by twin 425hp Cummins turbo diesel engines coupled to twin Hamilton 292 water-jets with dual 1,000 Gallon Per Minute Hale Fire Pumps. Dual fire monitors and dual 5” Storz Discharges offer open-water fire suppression and land based apparatus water supply. Simultaneous pumping and propulsion from both engines maintains maneuverability while flowing fire suppression water as well as providing full fire pumping redundancy. The interior features a fully enclosed cabin complete with two shock-mitigating seats, a patient treatment bench with restraints, a head enclosure and galley.

The Moose Boat will be responsible for fire-fighting, search and rescue and patient transport within Southern Puget Sound. The M2-37 is the first Moose Boat to offer an electrically operated bow door for personnel deployment beach rescue and land based firefighting operations.

West Pierce Fire and Rescue utilized a Fiscal Year 2008 Port Security Grant Program award to purchase the Moose Boats M2-37. The vessel will serve as a regional asset interoperating with neighboring agencies.

Moose Boats has constructed several fire-fighting vessels for agencies throughout the United States including Tiburon Fire Rescue District and San Francisco Fire Department in California, Old Saybrook Fire Department in Connecticut, Lewes Fire Department in Delaware, Anne Arundel County in Maryland, Massport Fire/Rescue at Boston Logan Airport, Northport Fire Department in New York and New Jersey State Police. Moose Boats currently has fire rescue vessels under construction for Sandwich Fire Department in Massachusetts and New Jersey State Police and is contracted to build fire rescue vessels for and North Kingstown Fire Department in Rhode Island and Richmond Fire Department in California.
