  1. What is their man power normally,how many rigs do they run
  2. I don't think so. The 2 and 2 with the battalion is normal for highway boxes. They send an engine and truck in each direction. Whatever companies come upon the accident first will handle
  3. In those 9 engine companies,are they all engines because I know Stamford use to run quints as an engine company
  4. What makes you think they did a poor job
  5. I spent 5 years working a busy bls unit in the Bronx. I could easily do 7,8 even 9 jobs in an 8 hours tour. Where the ALS units in my station would do 2 maybe 3 if the were busy. What the fire department should do is get rid of the double EMT double medic unit and staff it,one medic and one EMT. This way every unit goes to everything. You could have a medic unit sitting on your block and it won't respond to your broken leg or cut arm,you will wait the 10 plus mins for bls. Then you have a cardiac arrest, you get an engine company, bls unit,ALS unit and a conditions boss,waste of resources
  6. Way to make the fire service look good chief, in my opinion you don't deserve anything. I hope Putnam's new commissioner does something about his county,what ashame,
  7. First departments in this county were stealing money,now this. Well done Putnam County,well done,what a joke
  8. I agree with the rescue medics 100% but just not the way they are utilized. I believe there are 2 in the area where I work, I run in with one all the time so it's a busy unit. If both of those units are tied up, the next rescue unit is coming from out of borough. I think they should be used just like a rescue unit, major incidents. Send them to every 10-75, you be amazed at how may man undes there are throughout the city. Plus your pin jobs, water incidents and any other major event.
  9. Yeah but what those articles don't say is that the rescue medics are in service like a normal ALS unit responding to normal everyday runs. I've been to situations where rescue medics could have been sent but they weren't and instead you get a normal ALS unit
  10. Is it necessary
  11. Are they serious
  12. I'm also curious to know what makes this rig able to handle "any type of fire anywhere within the region".
  13. What's the fire duty like in Carmel where its necessary to spend $1.3 million, and what makes it so special, that ugly green and black paint
  14. I agree jd783,I find it hard to believe nobody in that department didn't notice. The days of the good old boys club is gone, shut them down
