Marine Operations

Beginning in the mid-19th century, New York, a busy port city, needed full-time fireboats to protect the waterfront and fight fires on wooden boats docked at the city’s piers. Fireboats have been stationed at ports in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Fireboat companies were designated Engine Companies until 1959 when the Marine Division was organized.
