MILWAUKEE FIRE DEPT “TRIDENT FIREBOAT”
Now a tradition at the annual Air & Water Show, the Milwaukee Fire Dept. “Trident Fireboat” will demonstrate its capabilities on the waters of Lake Michigan. The Trident was dedicated in 2009, and is the newest addition to Milwaukee’s fireboat fleet. A fireboat is a specialized watercraft with pumps and nozzles designed for fighting shoreline and shipboard fires. The first fireboats, dating to the late 18th century, were tugboats, retrofitted with firefighting equipment. They are frequently used for fighting fires on docks and shore side warehouses as they can directly attack fires in the supporting underpinnings of these structures. They also have an effectively unlimited supply of water available, pumping directly from below the hull. Some modern fireboats are capable of pumping tens of thousands of gallons of water per minute. Fireboats are most usually seen by the public when welcoming a fleet or historical ships with a display of their water moving capabilities, throwing arcs of water in every direction. They also carry divers or surface water rescue workers.
U.S. COAST GUARD
Air Station Traverse City, MI
HH-60 Jayhawk Rescue Helicopter
Air-Sea Rescue Demonstration
Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City was established in 1946 and is a part of the United States Coast Guards Ninth District, and is situated on the southern end of Grand Traverse Bay in northern Michigan. Since 1995, Air Station Traverse City has controlled and manned Air Facilities throughout southern Lake Michigan. The Coast Guard completed upgrades to its fleet of 45 MH-60J Jayhawk medium range recovery helicopters in August 2016. Redesignated as MH-60Ts, the upgraded helicopters received new flight instruments and avionics, communications and navigation equipment. Air Station Traverse City is now transitioning back to the HH-60J this summer of 2017. The Milwaukee Air & Water Show is once again proud to feature U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City, Michigan.
