  1. Rumor is that Yonkers Battalion Chiefs - who come along with the 1 & 1 (a Battalion 3 is sometimes placed into service back in YO) - like taking over operations/command at the fire scene. When you don't play nice in somebody else's sandbox they don't have to invite you back to play...
  2. Sounds like Yonkers Dispatch is back online.
  3. Port Chester government press release in regards: http://www.portchesterny.com/Pages/PortChesterNY_News/023CF0E6-000F8513 Also, the Local has set up a new Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/PortChesterProFire/
  4. Empress has publicly announced on their Instagram page they are taking over 911 services for Harrison starting tomorrow (Sunday) 2300 hours
  5. 30A15 went out on an FD smoke in the structure call. 60-Control didn't assign him, and he said he would landline 60. Anybody know what's up with this?
  6. Water coming from Croton Aqueduct. Yonkers OEM on scene at 13:50 hrs, requesting American Red Cross for up to 200 displaced residents. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/03/11/high-rises-evacuated-after-mudslide-in-yonkers/

  8. From my understanding, the bus was requested in order to provide temporary shelter for the evacuated (later displaced) residents of 371 South Broadway (the 4-story/48-unit apartment building next to the fire building). I don't know whether it was OEM, FD, or PD who made the request. Once the Red Cross with OEM set up a Reception Center at a nearby church, the Bee-Line bus was released after a few hours of service and cleared the scene. I'm sure the bus could also have been used for firefighters, but I only saw it being utilized by a dozen or so civilians. I could be mistaken, so feel free to correct me if that's the case.
  9. Great! So now the ETA to get off the ground won't be 45 minutes anymore? Oh, wait...
  10. You mean it's not professional to spit out your dip three times while doing a camera interview? Here is a direct link the video: http://www.lohud.com/videonetwork/2863775695001/House-fire-in-Yorktown
  11. No, and no. Although, it's not uncommon for school to have CPR training offered one day a year for their staff. I know the American Red Cross has recently come out with a fantastic program for faculty as well as students with the cost in mind.
  12. Tomorrow at 11:30am Mayor Spano and Yonkers PD will be holding a press conference at the Cacace Justice Center to unveil the new Major Emergency Transportation Unit (METU). The METU is funded by the FEMA Urban Area Security Initiative Grant Program.
