Fire Fighter has the hard-earned distinction of being the most award-decorated fireboat in the world, and at the time of her 2010 decommissioning she was the second oldest fireboat in frontline service worldwide and was the longest-serving member of the FDNY Marine Unit Fleet. A National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
