NEW YORK (WABC) -- Firefighters from across New York came together Saturday for the 10th Annual Blessing of the Boats.
The fire department has more than 20 vessels that patrol the waters around New York City.
On the deck of the Intrepid, firefighters said prayers, tossed flowers into the water and sprayed the boats with water.
This year, the department welcomed two new boats: "Firefighter Two" and "The Bravest".
