  1. Here's a sneak peak of appartus being moved in.... http://www.fireapparatusmagazine.com/articles/fdic/2017/04/fdic-2017-move-in-part-2.html I'm jealous of those attending! I want the Miami-Dade wrecker!

  3. I think the more important thing is....will it carry on Hartsdale's solid all lime green paint job (My preference), or will a solid red paint job win out? I'm told Hartsdale committee members were checking out this rig amongst others at the Long Island show. This truck is owned by Atlantic Hook And Ladder of Port Washington FD. It's a 2016 Spartan ERV 93', the model Hartsdale is going with.
  4. Apparently, there will be a Mexico-based fire truck manufacturer displaying this year. I've never heard of them until seeing the ad in Fire Engineering this evening. http://www.quirogatrucks.com/EN/index_en.html
  5. That's the rumor currently being kicked around. Nothing concrete from a valid source yet.
  6. Last night, a transformer substation caught fire on Oregon Rd in the Lake Mohegan Fire District, and F-500 encapsulator agent was used to quickly extinguish the fire. A little background. In July, 2009, FDNY responded to yet another transformer fire and failed to extinguish it with foam and powder. The HAZMAT team suggested they try F-500 Encapsulator Agent. F-500 EA extinguished the transformer fire in less than two minutes. This led to extensive testing by ConEdison to find a solution for transformer fires. F-500 EA’s unique ability to fight three-dimensional, Class B transformer fires by rapidly cooling the massive metal and encapsulating the burning oil made it the only agent ConEdison recommends for transformer fires. F500 is also used across many types of fire situations. For more on F-500, visit http://www.hct-world.com/products/chemical-agents/f-500-encapsulator-agent/ . AAA Emergency Supply Co., Inc is the local distributor of F500. If you want more information, or you'd like to arrange a demo, contact your local AAA Emergency Supply Co Inc sales representative. Westchester County DES Haz Mat members arrived with Utility 177 and the F-500 encapsulating agent, and the fire was quickly extinguished, as shown in the video below. Thanks to Al Sulenski for the video.
  7. A MUST-have for FDNY fans! Anything and everything you need to know about the department!
