We are a verified 501c3 non-profit museum group of volunteers dedicated to preserving the former New York City Fire Department fireboat Fire Fighter as a fully operational museum ship and memorial. The Fire Fighter is currently berthed at the commercial dock in the village of Greenport, NY and is open each weekend for visitation and volunteer restoration work. Please contact us if you would like to help us restore the Fighter!
In frontline service for over seven decades protecting New York Harbor, Fire Fighter has the hard-earned distinction of being the most award-decorated fireboat in the world, and at the time of her 2010 decommissioning she was the second oldest fireboat in frontline service worldwide. As a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Fire Fighter is a truly significant piece of American history now available to the general public.
