New firefighting pair join the brigade

Two new fire boats have entered service on the River Thames, London, UK for the London Fire Brigade (LFB). 

The dedicated craft, by Camarc Design, have been designed to enhance LFB's firefighting and rescue operations via increased capacities and performance over the current fleet. The 16m all-aluminium waterjet shallow-draft vessels were built by Camarc partners Holyhead Marine Services. 

The vessels are able to achieve speeds in excess of 40 kts, with a bow ramp and layout designed for rescue operations on the banks and mud flats of the Thames.

The London Fire Brigade said, “Fire boats 'Tanner' and 'Errington' are the latest in a long line of fire boats, working to keep Londoners safe along the River Thames. These boats have been specifically designed for operations on the Thames, and can carry out both firefighting and rescue duties. 

“Based out of Lambeth River Station, they'll work alongside our colleagues from the Metropolitan Police and RNLI in keeping the river safe. Our boats will be responsible for an area of river that stretches from Hampton Court in the west, all the way out to the Dartford Crossing in the east.”
