Fire Fighter

America's Fireboat


Click the “Watch” button to see a new short video about the efforts to save Fire Fighter – America’s Fireboat, narrated by Charles Osgood and directed by Noah Therrien. Watch and listen to our all-volunteer team who are trying to save this important vessel and how you can help! 


Visit Fire Fighter at her berth in Greenport, New York next to the Shelter Island ferry dock. Tours are conducted on weekends from 11AM to 5PM. Volunteers conduct tours of this unique fire fighting museum. Tour the entire ship, visit the engine room, and take in some maritime history.


Show off your skills! Volunteers are always welcomed at the Fireboat Fire Fighter Museum. Work on the engine of an historic vessel, restore the boiler room, lead a tour, or just get your hands dirty. Help us restore Fire Fighter to her glory days! 


Fire Fighter is a living and fully functioning example of the “blood and guts” era of FDNY fire fighting in New York Harbor. But she needs your help. Donate to help preserve, restore, and protect this maritime treasure for future generations.
