n February 22, 2012 the fi ftieth anni- versary of Fireboat 4 marked an impor- tant milestone here at the Port of Los


Angeles. Her purring engines and shiny decks make it diffi cult to believe she has been gracing our waters with her presence for fi ve decades. Ready at a moment’s notice to spring into ac- tion, she was specifi cally designed to meet the unique needs of her assignment here at the Port. The Los Angeles Harbor boasts a bus-


tling commercial industry of huge proportion along with extensive recreational and residen- tial areas. Fishing, working, and passenger ships use their assigned terminals here. Pleasure boat marinas, wharfs, and ecological preserves offer visitors some fun in the sun, while commercial production plants hum along close by. The obvi- ous diversity here creates a unique challenge in keeping people and property safe. We have been privileged to have Fire Boat 4 on our team as we continuously strive to provide superior support and protection to the Port of Los Angeles. Join us as we celebrate this extraor-


dinary vessel and her 50 years of service to the Port of Los Angeles! Past and present crew members of Fire Boat 4 will be on hand on Fire Service Day, May 12, 2012. Bring your family and friends for a tour and boat ride aboard a true piece of Los Angeles history. For further infor- mation please contact Fire Station 49 at (310) 548-7549.
