While that is true also factor in the amt. of ERS no contact the engines do.I also would point out that the Bronx has only has five (5) single engines including two Sq's 41 & 61, three single Engines 42,97 & 72, consequently you get Engines and two Trucks on the Box so the Engines will always outrun the Trucks, because they are assigned on many more Boxes.

So in my opinion its the ems runs that the engine companies make that is the difference.

New York City does a much more thorough job of reporting their run statistics. This year Chicago didn't even send in their busiest company statistics for Firehouse Magazine's annual run survey.[/b]
