    FDNY RANKS IN ‘TURMOIL’ AFTER COMMISSIONER DEMOTES CHIEFS, HIGH-RANKING OFFICIALS STEP DOWN

    I believe that Ms. Kavanaugh's actions in demoting the two staff chiefs wwithout consultation with Chief of Deparftment and Chief of Operation is a sign of weakness rather than strength. It showed that she did not have the the trust of these two chiefs to discuss proposed actions beforehand...

    1/29/23 Staten Island All Hands Box 1493

    I responded to the scene. It did not look like there was very much damage in that first floor corner apartment. It was probably a contents fire that did not flash over before the FDNY arrived.

    12/30/22 Staten Island AH/UC Box 3851

    I never heard them give a 10-75 which you would think they would if there was extension to a private dwelling. Also, there was confusion about the address. The caller originally stated that she was at 82 Robinson but that the fire was on the next street Groton when the fire was actually at the...

    Is this true : New York Harbor is very shallow so that if a Ferry began to take on water and sink most of the superstructure would remain above the waterline ?

    The newest Ferry. I rode it on Tuesday. I would be interested in finding out how long it took to evacuate 662 passengers. Since this was a minor incident it would probably represent a "best case scenario".
