Staten Island and Manhattan Island need an additional squad. Brooklyn has two squads and does Queens and the Bronx

The northern parts of manhattan are covered by squad 41. I forget what street they go down to on the east and west side. Someone here has the answer. Let’s not forget squad 1 used to take in all of Staten Island jobs and what not before squad 8 was created. The higher ups have pre planned for things like this to happen.

I think Sq-18 covers up to 96 on the East Side & 125 on the West Side

But then again times have changed Barb wise

SI just got Squad 8 which does not leave SI, unlike Rescue 5 which covers parts of Brooklyn.

Although it would be nice to have additional squad companies, there are a few needs SI has for fire protection that will become greater as the Island continues to grow and becomes busier and more congested.

SI still has the same number of battalion chiefs it had almost 100 years ago. There are only 3 BCs and even a 10-75 requires 2 chiefs from Brooklyn. Chiefs from other borough busy battalions can have runs of 10 or 20 miles or more - and then they have to return. So SI gets delayed responses and Brooklyn loses a busy chief due to lengthy travel times for long periods of time. Chiefs on SI recognized this shortcoming at least over 40 years, when fires on SI had no chiefs assigned because of an on-going fire or incident. Cities and counties with comparable size to SI often have 4, 5 or 6 BCs.

West Shore ladder companies are sparse on SI. Single West Shore firehouses have no truck companies - E 158, Sq 8 (former E 154), E 168. Response of ladder companies to West Shore fires can be slow depending upon availabilities (e.g. - L 86).

Some SI neighborhoods which continue to grow have long responses due to distance from firehouses. New Springfield/SI Mall area have grown significantly with stores, commercial buildings and housing developments. Same with Princes Bay/Pleasant Plains area.

Just looking at the gaps on the map, I'd put an engine and truck on SI near the mall. If I were to put another Squad somewhere, I'd do it in this gap in Midwood. SQ1 would probably still go to SI, but would get relief not having to go to the southern end of Brooklyn.

SID to B22: "Signal 10-30 has been transmitted due to the amount of calls we're receiving, you're getting E158"

SID to B22: "with the request of the extra E/T we're going to transmit the All Hands"
B22 To SID: "10-4"

Fire was a 10-75 around 0850 and under control around 0950. Do you think Sq 41 ever got there, depending on traffic?
Hope they at least got a cup of coffee for the ride back.
