DC Fire and EMS posted on twitter:

"DC F&EMS Fire Boats deployed to Potomac River in vicinty of Natl Airport standby for airplane coming in"

Then thankfully followed up 15 minutes later with:
"updates - fireboats are clear from airport -"

The first one scared me and thankfully nothing is wrong. Still ... anybody know what happened? Why would boats be sent out?

Pardon all the edits, editing as quick as DCFD is providing information, as I do not want to leave anyone hanging

Well the first thing that comes to mind is an aircraft in a state of emergency which they fear may not make it to the runway... Glad it was called off but I am curious as to what happened.
