All sorts of fast planing type hulls have been used for fireboats. Tug style displacement hulls usually have more room for higher capacity pumps.
After WWI, several 110' subchasers were sold to various cities and converted to fireboats.
Baltimore Fireboat CASCADE, circa 1920
Norwalk, CT has a nice one.
Several cities have fireboats built by SAFE Boats in Seattle.

The change has been that the fire boats are performing more
medical emergency first response than actual fire fighting.
The two new boats local for the Sheriff and Fire department were
both aluminium hull fast boats.
The reasoning for keeping and maintaining the old fire boat is that it is
a huge pumping resource should waterlines fail. It is also irreplaceable monetarily if
the city should want to retire it and build a new one.
