The Marblehead Project-Out of service in 2016

This is an historical page. The Firelands Rural Fire District has been in active service since early 2012. Our history is important to our members and we like to keep old pages active for a reminder of where we've come from.

The Marblehead is being built at the request of Carla Laville, Chief of the Firelands Rural Fire District. Designed to assist with offshore firefighting and air / sea rescue, the Marblehead is being built by Second Life's newest Master Shipwright Mr. Pier G. Cukor.

The Marblehead (designated MDRC-01) will be used to carry an HH-65C "Dolphin" helicopter. The Marblehead is the second ship to be put into service by the F.R.F.D.

The ship is a medium duty response cutter (M.D.R.C.) and four such ships will be put into service by the F.R.F..D. as follows:

Ship Designation                               Home Port
(MDRC-01) Marblehead                   Alvensleben Marina (Station 39)
(MDRC-02) Fairport                          Foresta Marina (Station 38)
(MDRC-03) Lorain                            Antilaghi Regional Airport (Station 79)
(MDRC-04) Cedar Point                   T.B.A.

Special thanks to Mr. Cukor for his time, skill, and loving craftsmanship.
