  1. .The response of the FDNY small boat to Rye illustrates what some think is one of the great weaknesses in Westchester fire protection is along the Sound Shore where fire fighting capabilities are shaky to .non existent. From the Bronx line to Connecticut there are billions of dollars of boats, marine facilities and shore front properties yet there is little meaningful fire protection.

  6. If I am not mistaken the Consolidation Plan submitted several years ago consisting of around 10 willing Departments and District would have put as many as 26 men and on the scene in 6 minutes on three engines, two ladders , a heavy rescue and Incident Commander , the location of this fire was a perfect example. The craziest part of the whole plan would have been the closest firehouse to the call responded, despite municipal boundaries could you imagine that ?????

  11. It is just Gov. Cuomo preparing for his run for President in 2020, this will attract the enviormental crowd and his recent appearance with Bernie to announce free college tuition in New York State will attract those who believe that.
  12. Some New Rochelle Fire Houses are over 100 years old and I am certain had this house not been in a prime renewal location it too would have become 100 years old in 2066
  13. Lesson learned for the Fire Service on limited access highways and interstates, position a blocking apparatus between on coming traffic and operating units. Know how to slant blocking rig to deflect a vehicle away from the troops should it be struck. Better yet shut down traffic, at least till the emergency phase of operation is under control,
