Although I don't know George Munch, I DO know Warren Fuchs.
We are HONORED to have both of these GREAT RETIRED FDNY Dispatchers on here with us.
You guys were always my favorites as I listened in to your EXPERTISE in dispatching the Busiest Fire Dept, no doubt, in the Entire World. During it's Busiest Years of EXTREMELY HEAVY Fire Activity.
ALL BEFORE A THING CALLED: "COMPUTER AIDED DISPATCHING".
Some other favorites of mine were; "Dispatcher 124", "Dispatcher Three Three Oh", a few more too.
It was so busy back then, it was impossible to listen to even TWO Boros at the same time.
Of course EVERYBODY was GREAT in those days. They HAD TO BE. There was No Room for Mistakes.
Job very well done and ALL THE BEST TO ALL THOSE WHO SOMEHOW OPERATED UNDER WHAT TODAY WE CALL; "THE FDNY WAR YEARS".
PLEASE - ENJOY YOUR WELL DESERVED RETIREMENTS.
P.S. - I took a part time dispatcher job for a small town here. A busy eight hour shift would be maybe 4 or 5 fire, or EMS calls. In fact in those days, maybe late 80s or early 90s, we had a scanner in the dispatch center and I would tune the FDNY in. That was back when FDNY was on the 154 mhz frequency and I looked forward to listening in. That dispatch center had a huge high tower in one of the highest locations in Connecticut.
A place called "Lantern Hill". I could usually pick them up about 120 miles away.
"A GREAT FRINGE BENEFIT THAT CAME WITH THAT JOB".
