MARINE 3 - 4 & 8 HAVE BEEN IN SERVICE FOR A WEEK ALREADY.
Yes they are using the three new Safe Boats. The other new Safe Boats have not arrived yet with the exception of Marine 6B - which is a medical boat.

2.5 SUMMER BOAT PROGRAM
Marine Operations Summer Boat Program will be in service as of 0700 hours, Monday, April 29, 2019 as follows:
 Marine 3, based at Kingsborough College, will cover the South shores of Brooklyn and Queens, and monitor
the Queens radio frequency.
 Marine 4, based at the Fort Totten, will cover the North shore of Queens and the South shore of the Bronx,
and monitor the Bronx radio frequency.
 Marine 8, based at Atlantis Marina, will cover Staten Island, and monitor the Staten Island radio frequency.
These boats will be in service daily from 0700 to 2400 hours and are operated by an Officer and two CFR certified
firefighters from Marine Operations. They will operate on the Borough Radio frequency indicated above, as well as
Channel 6B on the 800 MHz radio. These 33 foot SAFE Boats are equipped with a 1000 GPM fire pump, 25 gallons
of Universal Gold AR-AFFF (Alcohol Resistant Aqueous Film Forming Foam), generator, de-watering pumps,
FLIR Infrared Systems and basic Haz-Mat detection equipment in addition to standard water rescue equipment.
These boats are an excellent water source for fires in remote areas near the waterfront. The boats should also be
used to ensure the safety of members operating on piers or near the water. They can also be used to communicate
with NYPD Harbor Units and NYPD Aviation, the US Coast Guard and other vessels via their Marine VHF radio for
water rescues, dive ops, boaters in distress, and/or reports of drowning and other medical emergencies.
Remember to take it coming in
