I wish them a speedy recovery. I don’t mean to be insensitive but didn’t they have a bailout system? If they did the fire spread so fast that they couldn’t use it.

They jumped out of the second floor window onto the porch roof. But since there was snow and ice on it they slid off. If no snow and ice they would of been fine on the porch roof. There injuries are from sliding off of the porch roof not jumping directly out if the window. Speedy recovery to the brothers

Placing ground ladders for egress takes manpower. Something they don't have up there.

On FFclosecalls they have a blurb on this JOB, with a pic...and it shows the fire building, you can see these guys did NOT take an easy ride down...off the roof onto the porch stairs...luckily no one was under them!

No. They will be purchased in 2013. Why not sooner you might ask? It's a long story that is being resolved. I will not divulge into the matter.

Yes, we are understaffed. Our minimum manning is 10, which puts 2 on each rig, and that includes the truck.

Units are back at the scene of a "rekindle", now a 3rd alarm.

KINGSTON, N.Y. - City firefighters battled the second blaze in three days at the apartment building at 78 Franklin St. on Monday morning.

Fire Chief John Reinhardt had said investigators were leaning toward classifying the Monday fire as suspicious.

I wish the brothers a speedy recovery. I myself was sidelined by a major illness and am only now getting back up to speed so I can appreciate the long road ahead of them. Stay safe!

From Facebook -

Kingston will soon purchase a variety of safety equipment for firefighters using a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, officials said. Mayor Shayne Gallo said that the city has received a $99,396 grant from the federal agency to be used for sorely needed equipment in the fire department. Gallo said the equipment should have been purchased long ago but was not. See more details in Freeman on New Year’s Day and on website.
