John D. McKean Fire boat

John D. McKean is a fire boat that served the New York City Fire Department as Marine Company 1. She is named after John D. Mckean, who died in a 1953 steam explosion while trying to save a predecessor fire boat, the George B. McClellan.

John D. McKean cost $1.4 million. She fought a notable fire at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, in 1991. It was one of the fire boats, along with Fire Fighter and the retired John J. Harvey, that responded to Manhattan during the September 11th attacks to supply firefighters with water after water mains broke following the collapses. The boat helped rescue passengers from US Airways Flight 1549, when she made an emergency landing on the Hudson River in 2009.

Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This John D. McKean model is mounted on a solid wood base and ready to display.
