    6/28/22 Bronx Technical Rescue Box 8855

    Prisoners no longer bury the dead on Hart Island. OCME still delivers bodies several times a week. The city under DeBlasio early in covid hired a private company to do burials. Its actually quite organized. Hart Island had an actual fire house on its south end. It was pretty much an unheated...

    You are correct that units have been moved around both voluntary hospital and FDNY units. Many reasons why that happens but mainly operational needs are the driving force behind those moves. I have also heard that the COD is riding the bus to gain insight. Total Respect for the man.

    Number 1 above is an inaccurate statement. There is no bidding process. As I recall if a hospital wants to participate in the 911 system they contact the FDNY who does an analysis to determine areas of need. If the area of need as identified by the FDNY is agreeable to the hospital asking to...

    7-8-21...ENG*43 DRAFTS ON THE FLOODED HIGHWAY.

    Thanks, I figured it would be extremely rare on a regular Engine. The last time I actually saw one in "action" was when I was a kid watching 70 & 53 getting water out of their cellar. It seemed to work well.

    7-8-21...ENG*43 DRAFTS ON THE FLOODED HIGHWAY.

    Great photo. Drafting in NYC is a rare event, I would have thought more along the lines of the Dewatering unit or Eductor for this type of event. Are Eductors even still available at the Company level or is that something on the Dewatering Unit ?

    QNS BOX 0035 ....LGA AIRPORT FIRE.

    Interesting the PA feels they don't need the FDNY when they actually might. The PA conveniently forgets the CFRD Engine Company is a link in the chain of survival. While they may not need the Firefighting services of the FDNY they most certainly need the EMS part of the FDNY (evidenced by the...
