  6. 73 years ago this weekend was a deadly time for the Yonkers Fire Department and the Mount Vernon Fire Department. Saturday Jan. 30, 1943 Mount Vernon Fireman John O'Rourke died after being overcome by smoke at a fire at 10 Brookdale Place. Sunday Jan. 31, 1943 Yonkers Fireman James Kane and Probationary Fireman Thomas Corbalis were were killed when they and four other firefighters plunged into a basement at a fire at 373 Warburton Ave. Think of their sacrifices and stay safe brothers and sisters! http://www.fultonhistory.com/highlighter/highlight-for-xml?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fultonhistory.com%2FNewspapers%252023%2FTarrytown%2520Ny%2520Daily%2520News%2FTarrytown%2520Ny%2520Daily%2520News%25201943%2FTarrytown%2520Ny%2520Daily%2520News%25201943%2520a%2520-%25200244.pdf&xml=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fultonhistory.com%2FdtSearch%2Fdtisapi6.dll%3Fcmd%3Dgetpdfhits%26u%3D5a2adeaa%26DocId%3D6997913%26Index%3DZ%253a%255cIndex%2520O%252dG%252dT%252dS%26HitCount%3D22%26hits%3D5e%2B64%2B65%2B77%2B78%2B7b%2B7c%2B83%2B85%2B8e%2Bba%2Bbc%2Bf9%2B10e%2B163%2B16a%2B48e%2B7f5%2Ba98%2Baa2%2Bab3%2Bacf%2B%26SearchForm%3D%252fFulton%255fNew%255fform%252ehtml%26.pdf&openFirstHlPage=false

  11. When I was in company it was 1 3/4" hose. Now many departments are going with single-jacketed 2" hose. It's worth trying...
  12. In addition to 3 lengths of attack hose (with a 4th as an option for some buildings with long stretches) Yonkers would often carry an extra wheel and pipe wrench in case the wheel was missing or the operating stem rounded. E306 carried a male NPT to 2 1/2" NY Corp. nipple since often the brass fittings were stolen. We made up a short length of 2 1/2" hose with a 2 1/2" by two 1 1/2" wye so we could flow water immediately, bleed the garbage out the open side of the wye and then be ready to quarter turn the valve to the attack hose once the officer called for water. The nozzle was a smooth bore 15/16" tip.
  13. Thank you for your service Hap!
  14. Watch when the rig is backing up too...
