  1. A CDL is not required for any emergency vehicle, only a valid drivers license. Almost all fire apparatus would required a CDL without the exemption. However the person delivering the vehicle is required to have a CDL. Once it is owned by a political subdivision, the vehicle is considered an authorized emergency vehicle and the CDL exemption kicks in. They are even exempt from the tow truck regulation as are the NYPD tow trucks. (for those who would ask). Tow trucks are required to have tow truck plates. This is because tow trucks are required to have higher limits in insurance.
  2. They can always come to New York and replace the troopers that the governor is sending to NYC . Troop G in Connecticut isn't that far from 684. In fact they covered a small part of it.
  3. Port Chester and Rye Brook settle fire contract dispute After a year-long disagreement over an alleged breach of a shared fire services contract, Port Chester and Rye Brook have reached a settlement, the villages announced Thursday. http://www.lohud.com/story/news/local/westchester/2017/05/04/port-chester-rye-brook-dispute/101290204/
  4. But just think how much money the protesters brought into the city for both the UN and Trump Properties!
  5. Snuck that one past me.
  6. Funny thing, I don't remember hearing that the Chappaqua Fire Department or VAC had units at Bill and Hill's while he was president. Ditto on Crawford. Also the law was changed. Bill Clinton is the last ex president to receive protection for life. Now it only for 10 years after leaving office.
  7. A few inches of snow or hurricanes, tornadoes or bugs. choices, choices!
  8. lets pray we never go back to those days.
  9. It's all how the spec is written. for example if the department wants a specific feature or equipment and that feature is specific to a certain manufacturer then others may not meet the spec. Also if that feature is an option to other manufacturers, it may drive the cost up to the point that they wont submit a bid. Some departments have height, weight, size or departure angle limitations and these may disqualify many manufacturers.
  10. All of their equipment is White over Maroon.
  11. Many years ago almost all of the County parks had summer police assigned to them. They used to be called "specials" and wore the County PD uniforms with the old patch and hats with "a 50 mission crush". We were armed with a .38. Many police officers of my time started off as specials. "
  12. ABC news reported that a Bobcat fell 30 feet. You can see it in the top picture
  13. I heard on the radio this morning that the Governor did not even have the courtesy to contact the mayor of Buchanan (the municipality were Indian Point is located) to discuss the subject. She found out about it by reading the NY Times.
