Did you know that the Fireboat E.M. Cotter Conservancy offers an Educational and Informational presentation to local Community and Senior groups to learn more about our local Historic Landmark, the 119 year old Fireboat E. M. Cotter?

We have a 30 minute video and speaker presentation, as well as a companion presentation for our partner group, the Buffalo Fire Historical Museum. We will provide the speaker, videos, screens, and brochures and you provide the room and an electrical connection.

These presentations highlight the history of the Buffalo Fire Department and the changes to the waterfront over many years and include a video tour of the Fireboat, top to bottom. Sure to interest everyone!

If you would like more information or to make arrangements for groups, please contact Mr. Ronald Endle, Conservancy Vice President at 716-479-4186 or email: ronfirellc@aol.com. We look forward to seeing you.
