    The New York Fire Patrol used this building after Ladder 49 left. It was the quarters for Fire Patrol # 6 from 1949 until 1955. In 1955 the NYFP closed Patrol 6.

    White House Utility District (WHUD), the state’s largest geographic utility provider, is using advanced mapping software to help Goodlettsville Fire Department keep its hydrants functioning at max capacity. The map, built in WHUD’s geographic information system (GIS), has increased efficiency, increased repair time and improved fire protection for the community. "We have seen a tremendous improvement our response time to fire hydrant issues,” said Rocky Reecer, operations manager for WHUD, “which is an important part of a community’s fire protection plan. Before this system, we would get a long list of needed repairs, a couple of times a year. Now, using our real-time mapping software, we are notified the minute a problem is found and can usually get it repaired within a matter of days. Before, it could take up to three months to get a full list of repairs completed." Using any tablet or mobile device, Goodlettsville Fire Department crews can access the map in the field during routine hydrant inspections. If a problem is detected, they can access the exact hydrant on the map and report the problem, along with detailed information about the issue. Doing so sends an automatic notification to WHUD operations’ team, who can then schedule a crew for repair. “Goodlettsville Fire found our hydrant repair requests to be easier to track and send on our end, and the resulting repairs happened in a very timely fashion,” said Fire Chief Kenneth Reeves. “Tracking hydrant maintenance and flushing records on the app was also very convenient and more reliable than paper records in the fire engine. We plan to continue using the app.” Key benefits of the program are: • Safety – Fire hydrants are supply water during fires. If they aren’t working, fire protection is jeopardized and community safety is impacted. For More You Can Check: Blockchain Application Marketing

    Jersey City ‪We are building a new Fire House in Ward “F” this year as part of our 2018 budget. The new house will be located on Halladay Street and will be a state of the art facility to serve the community. This will be Jersey City’s 1st new Fire House since 2002 and it is important to note that we provided dates below of construction of the other fire houses with many of the facilities being over 100 years old. We are putting the city’s current fire houses on a steady rotation to be rebuild because while our administration has grown the FD with people, we want to make sure we have the best equipment and continue to the JCFD’s reputation as the best in New Jersey When were other Jersey City fire houses built? 160 Grand st 1850 355 Newark Ave 1965 465 Marin Blvd 1982 283 Halladay st 1880 16 Orient Ave 1998 152 Linden Ave 1889 2 Bergen Ave 1910 486 Ocean Ave 1894 152 Lincoln st 1905 715 summit 1997 599 Palisades Ave 2002 697 Bergen Ave 1873 200 sip Ave 1905 582 Communipaw Ave 1900
