LAFD Fireboat #2
LAFD Fireboat #5
Land-based members of the Los Angeles Fire Department as well as LAFD Fireboats 1, 2 & 5 quickly responded in the pre-dawn hours of Friday, December 23, 2005 to a sinking 22-foot vessel by the Fish Markets near Signal Place and 22nd Street in San Pedro.
This 5:01 AM response was promptly and efficiently handled by the Fireboat personnel. We're pleased to say there were no injuries.
The LAFD staffs five Fireboats to proudly serve the busiest port on the Pacific rim.
We thank "Life On the Edge" for the photos above, and for routinely chronicling the endeavors of Firefighters working in LAFD's Battalion 6.
