Fireboat 721 is a small fireboat operated by the Bullhead City Fire Department, on the Colorado River.[1][2] Bullhead City is on the Arizona side of the river, and the city received a Port Security Grant from the Department of Homeland Security to help acquire the boat.

On May 20, 2021, the boat was deployed to fight a brushfire, from the river, while fire trucks attacked the fire from above.[1][2]
