The Detroit Fire Boat is stored next door to the Westcott. It is also next door to Riverside Park.
The Curtis Randolph was launched in 1979 and was named after a young firefighter who died in the line of duty in 1977. It was commissioned by Mayor Coleman A. Young. It is the only Class A fireboat on the waterways between Chicago and Cleveland. It can be used to pumped water for fires that are close to a river.
