  1. E1, E2, E3, E4, T1, T4, R5, and C3 were on scene along with Cos Cob Patrol 2 and Utility 2.
  2. There is only one Field Comm. Unit in service. It is located at the quarters of E233/L176 on Rockaway Ave. in Brownsville/Bed-Stuy.
  3. The firehouse in Old Greenwich is known as Sound Beach. Its a combination house with two paid personnel staffing Engine 5 per shift. All the pieces of apparatus at each firehouse, save the paid rigs, are manned by volunteer personnel from that respective volunteer house. The paid GFD responds to all calls throughout the town. The volunteers also respond to calls in their respective areas and throughout town, and supplement the paid units.
  4. There are currently seven firehouses in the town of Greenwich. Five are combination paid/volunteer (Central, Cos Cob, Byram, Glenville, Sound Beach), one is all volunteer (Round Hill) and one is all paid (North Street). Banksville FD in Westchester County provides some coverage to the northern areas of town. The paid GFD currently operates six engine companies and one truck company. Engine 1, Engine 4, and Engine 8 are staffed by four personnel per shift. Engine 2, Engine 3, and Engine 5 are staffed by two personnel. Ladder 1 is staffed by three. There is also a rescue (Rescue 5) that can be cross-staffed if needed. There are also plans to open another firehouse in northwestern Greenwich, which would be Engine 9. I believe the paid GFD does around 4,000 calls annually. EMS is handled by Greenwich EMS.

Squad 1 is currently being housed at the Byram Firehouse.
  5. The location of R2's new quarters will be at Sterling Pl. & Saratoga Ave. across from Eastern Pkwy. in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, about a mile and a half from their current quarters at 1472 Bergen St. in Crown Heights. I believe R2's collapse rig will also be quartered at the new house.
  6. Merry Christmas to all the members of this site and their families. Hope all those working today have a safe tour. To our troops serving here and overseas on this Christmas Day, may they all come home safe to their families. May God bless and protect them always.

Mount Vernon recently went from 5 engines down to 4, losing Engine 2. White Plains: Engine 4 - 232 S. Lexington Ave. Engine 5 (aka 69) - Robertson Ave. & Harding Ave. - Early 1970s Eastchester: Engine 28 - 25 Underhill St. Rescue 5 - 2 Poplar St. Not sure of the dates when the Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, or Eastchester companies were disbanded. I'm sure I'm missing a few, including the volunteer companies. Feel free to correct or add to this list.
