Most likely the citywide tour commander. Who generally respond to 2nd alarm or greater during "business" hours.Hi all: quick question. Does anybody know what would cause Car 16C to respond on this? I understand certain cars rotate as the citywide command Chief, for example C15A at Sunday's fire. However, according to the car number list, 16C appears to be the Deputy Director of Fire Alarm Dispatch. Does anybody know why they would be responding? Just a curiosity. Thanks.
Thanks, I'm aware of the tour commander role but I assumed the Deputy Director of FAD would be a dispatcher/someone with a dispatch background. Is that role filled by Chiefs who have operational experience?Most likely the citywide tour commander. Who generally respond to 2nd alarm or greater during "business" hours.
1 will go out for fire/smoke on the initial ticket. I believe Terry Hatton started this. Morris Sr. Extended the area.A rescue company is normally assigned on an initial alarm when closer than the first ladder company. Rescue 1’s first alarm response area is further extended - from 9th Avenue west, from 23rd Street to 72nd Street.
