The Fire Department of New York (FDNY) used ARRA funding to help secure the safety and security of all New Yorkers and visitors who use our waterways. With this funding, the FDNY purchased three fast response fireboats as well as the City’s first medical response boat. The fast response fireboats are an excellent resource for response to shallow areas, such as those near New York airports.
FDNY is particularly excited about deploying the medical response boat (pictured above), which allows for patient pre-hospital care on the water. The boat can get to medical emergencies on the water swiftly and, at 31 feet long, it has room to treat patients. It is the first vessel in the FDNY’s fleet that will be certified as a waterborne ambulance. The boat has the same properties and capabilities as land-based ambulances.
All of the FDNY’s ARRA-funded fireboats are technologically advanced and have state-of-the-art features. They are equipped with night vision and heat detection to help responders locate victims in the water. Plus, with powerful 1000+ gallons-per-minute pumping capacity, they will be an enormous firefighting asset. The medical response boat also has a customized cabin so that responders can stabilize patients for safe transport.

Great documentary on the failures of BP and the risks they took looking for high profit margins.
APRIL 20, 2010: Deepwater Horizon Explosion
Two years ago today, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig caused a massive oil spill that would last for months in the Gulf of Mexico.
Soon after the spill, FRONTLINE and ProPublica set out to joint investigate the trail of problems that led to the disaster, including deadly accidents and countless safety violations which long troubled the oil giant, BP.
Could the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico have been prevented?
