For anyone interested in Fireboats, there is a show called "Hydrotech" about all different kinds of water related technology. The most recent episode featured Seattle FD Fireboats and a quest to develop, design, and build new fireboats that will serve the city's diverse water fire suppresion and rescue needs. Very cool show
With the very real threat of destructive fires and terrorism, the Seattle Fire Department has embarked on an ambitious plan. They're stocking up with two state-of-the-art, multi-million dollar fireboats that are capable of everything from fourth of July celebrations to being a deterrent to coastal terrorism. Fireboats have a long and proud history - from Shanghai to Seattle, the Great Chicago Fire, and of course, 9/11. We'll see how these floating fire trucks are built, and more importantly, what they can do when disaster strikes.
It's on the Smithsonian Channel (SMT).
