  1. Will have to get used to the new layout, but looks great so far.
  2. Although I haven't been there in about 30 years, I know that Wilson Woods pool (just off the Hutch in Mt. Vernon) just reopened after a huge renovation including putting in a wave pool. I can't speak to how good it is but might be worth a look. You need a Westchester Cty. Parks pass to get in.
  3. George was a great man who served his country in World War II, as well as serving the residents of Pelham Manor for over 40 years as a volunteer firefighter. He will be sorely missed.
  4. Saw a piece on that over the weekend on "Nascar Nation" Dale's widow was on hand for the delivery and dedication, and was made an honorary Chief of the Mooresville FD.
  5. I've used PrintWear Plus a couple of times and have had great luck. They do a nice job and the turnaround time is failry quick.
  6. I agree....if it weren't for direct connect I would have gotten rid of it long ago.
  7. Rescue 6.....gone but not forgotten
  8. Just a thought..with all the devestation caused by the tsunami in southeast Asia, perhaps a department down there would be a good candidate for a donation. I know that cost might be prohibitive, but who knows, maybe the Red Cross or some other relief agency would be willing to step up to the plate.
  9. Thanks for the quick answer, 10-75. All that equipment sitting idle...man, imagine what some financially strapped rural departments would do for just one rig!
  10. Shantz: Sorry if I wasn't clear, I was just reposting that article which I saw today. I've been following this thread since it started. Guess I should've put it in quotes! JB
  11. Just curious...what happens to the actual rig when the unit is disbanded?
  12. From the Secret List: There is also an interesting article on Firehouse.com worth checking out. A Chief in N.C. recently held a drill for his firefighters that was a surprise-as it was a live fire. The Chief had staged his members at their firehouse-under a different planning session. They had no idea that they were going to be dispatched to a working structure fire. While it appears everything went very well, it serves as a good reminder to us of how critical it is for us to prepare for any live fire training by following NFPA 1403 to a "T". Check it out at: http://cms.firehouse.com/content/article/a...nId=45&id=37946
  13. Just a couple weeks after the loss of FDNY FF Christian Engeldrum, another brother is killed serving his country. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. From Firehouse magazine: http://cms.firehouse.com/content/article/a...nId=46&id=37732
  14. Check out a place called Printwear Plus in Mamaroneck (on Prospect Ave.) We have ordered workshirts from them before, and I also just got a bunch of jackets and shirts made up there. They do a nice job.
  15. From what I understand, these new cars will only be in service on the Harlem line. The poor slobs on the New Haven line (myself included) will continue to ride on the old equipment. Unfortunately it looks like the same problems that plagued MN last winter will continue again in the coming months, as shown by the fifteen minute delay encountered thsi morning after last night's snow. I know 15 minutes doesn't sound like a long time, but imagine yourself on the platform this morning at 5:45 AM, and I think you'll undertand!
