  1. He set a fine example for his family that is carried on today. Condolences to Richie and his family
  2. Deepest sympathies to the families and members of the Tarrytown Fire Department.
  3. You guys did a great job with the restoration Tim. Good luck with the Engine in the future.
  4. The photos are probably taken around 1980 or 1981. I have to check my records as to when we got the Chevy utility. That was donated to the department by a member who had a construction company. It was in service for only a few years. The GMC started out as Engine 95 then became Mini Attack 18, before finally being the first Rescue 37.
  5. I had the pleasure of working with John at the Town of Ossining in the 70's and early 80's. He was a true friend and someone who always looked out for everyone. John brought me in as an associate member in Millwood and he always made you feel like family. My thoughts and prayers go out for his family at this sad time.
  6. Briarcliff purchased their first Hurst Tool somewhere around early 1974. Tommy Daggett was the Chief at the time and Wesco Fire Equipment had one in the shop. Tommy stopped in to see Bernie Rosenblatt and bought it right then and there. The original spreaders have been refurbished and are still on Engine 92.
  7. It is with deep sadness and regret the Scarborough Engine Company of the Briarcliff Manor Fire Department announces the passing of Ex-Capt and Life Member Ron Jankowski. Ron has been an active force in everything that the department has accomplished over the past twenty years. Ron passed away while playing hockey at the Harvey School in Katonah last night. Funeral arrangements We miss him dearly
  8. Tim, Looks like you guys did a great job and the rig looks really nice. Good luck and enjoy it for many years.
  9. The reason the old antique is Patrol 16 is because when we got the GMC/YOUNG in 1972 the antique was known as Engine 95. The Antique was changed to the little used patrol category and given the designation of Patrol 16. The GMC/YOUNG was given the Engine 95 designation which lasted until I believe some time into the late 70's when the county reclassified some apparatus and it was changed to Mini-attack 18. It remained that designation until it became the first Rescue 37 before we got the current rescue.
  10. Good luck Tim, its one of the best features of the site Mike
  11. Way to go Jack. Good luck Mike
  12. One of the teams that services the area is the Hudson Valley Critical Incident Stress Management Team. This team is made up of fire, ems, police, stat flight, and other emergency service members and is available 24/7. The team can be reached by contacting either Westchester, Putnam or Dutchess county fire controls and they will contact the team. Some of the services that are offered include on scene support, one on one peer support, demobilizations, defusings, debriefing, education, and family support services. The team is made up of peers to assist others who can relate to the issues that may be affecting someone or a dept. Privacy is part of the way the team operates. We owe it to our members to provide them with the support they need to deal with tough calls so that we don't make more victims from an incident.
  13. Try Crown Trophy at 1183 Route 9 in Wappinger Falls (845-297-6400). They area owned by the same guys who own the franchise in Briarcliff. We got some really nice statues to use for our parade trophies. They also have a website you can browse
  14. I did't renew my membership last year because I didn't like what was going on. I have still kept the same status with them that I did when I was a member. Hopefully they just need some new blood in their organization to get them back on track.
  15. I agree with you firecapt. We had them on all our pumpers in Briarcliff and slowly began to phase them out in the mid to late seventies after we started to switch over to the 3" supply lines.
