CityStream: Fireboat Training

With 193 miles of waterfront to patrol, the Seattle Fire Department’s fleet of fireboats serve a critical mission. Whether it’s a shoreline fire, a boat in distress or a medical emergency on the water, a fireboat gets the call. But maritime response requires specialized training. That’s where the Maritime Academy comes in. The academy’s realistic 360-degree simulator provides authentic scenarios that help fire crews practice their response. Producer Ian Devier has a look.


Law enforcement and transportation agencies are joining forces, with the help of researchers from CoSSaR, to mitigate the traffic congestion resulting from major incidents on I-5 through Seattle.

CoSSaR is a joint venture between APL-UW and the UW Human Centered Design and Engineering department.

Stakeholders are Washington State Department of Transportation, Seattle Department of Transportation, Seattle Fire Department, Seattle Police Department, Washington State Patrol, and King County Metro.

Seattle Fire: live burn training

On May 8th, 2019, I filmed the Seattle Fire Department doing live burn training in north Seattle.

Although the burn I was there for took place in the back of the house, I was still able to get some cool shots of the smoke, firefighting operations, and rarely seen apparatuses.
