Fire Boat London FB Fire Flash

Sept 2013 Greenwich London. I cannot recall now what they were doing but I assume an excercise.

London's two fireboats are called Fireflash and Firedart, both based at the Lambeth river station. Firedart is used in daily operation, while Fireflash is reserved for training exercises and a spare.

Built in 1999 by Northumberland-based shipbuilder Alnmaritec, they are used for a variety of incidents, such as people stranded in the River Thames, fires on boats, crashed boats, and riverside property on fire.
