Great pics. Nice to see all of those rigs again. I liked the GMC Young Mini and the old Ford Chief's Car. Question... Why was that Mack rig designated Patrol 16?

Thanks!

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.

Thats a great pic. I was wondering if any other departments in Westchester had a rig designated as a Patrol too. Also can only antique rigs be classified as a patrol?

Look at this prior thread : EMTBravo thread: Westchester Patrol Companies

It was phased out as a radio designation around 2000, by 60 Control in favor of Utliity/Rescue designations.

What as the job of a Patrol?

Depended on the department. Some where only fire police, some like Pleasantville's Patrol 7 were a combination of fire police, rescue, engine company. The 1980 Hahn carried 500 gallons of water a 1000 gpm pump, but no supply hose. It was also desiganted to act as a relay pumper when needed.
