Communications
Q: Who/what is Car [insert number]?  How do they respond?
A: The Car assignments are the designations for special personnel, either administrative or command, who are associated mainly with FD HQ.  For example, Car 36B is for the Department Chaplain.  There are certain responses, such as a third alarm or 10-60 transmission, that require the response of certain cars.  For example, multiple alarms requires the response of the on-duty staff chief (a chief at rank DAC or above).  There is a list of car assignments at: http://www.firebellclub.org/cars.html
Some Car assignments and who they are (as of November 2009):
Car 1 (Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro)
Car 1A (Executive Assistant to the Commissioner)
Car 2 (1st Deputy Commissioner Daniel Shacknai)
Car 3 (Chief of Department Edward Kilduff)
Car 4 (Chief of Fire Operations James Esposito)
Car 4A (AC James Manahan, Assistant Chief of Operations)
Car 4C (AC Ronald Spadafora, Chief of Logistics)
Car 4D (AC Joseph Pfeifer, Assistant Chief of Operations - Counterterrorism/Preparedness)
Car 4G (AC Edward Baggott, Assistant Chief of Operations - Administration)
Car 4H (DAC James Daly Jr, Deputy Assistant Chief of Operations - Planning & Strategy)
Car 5 (Chief of EMS Operations John Peruggia)
Car 6 (AC John Sudnik, Manhattan Borough Commander)
Car 7 (DAC James Leonard, Brooklyn Borough Commander)
Car 8 (DAC Michael Marrone, Staten Island Borough Commander)
Car 9 (DAC Robert Maynes, Queens Borough Commander)
Car 10 (DAC Kevin Butler, Bronx Borough Commander)
Car 11 (AC William Seelig, Chief of Special Operations Command)
Car 11A (BC Stephen J. Geraghty, Chief of Rescue Operations)
Car 11B (DC Nicholas Delre, Chief of HazMat Operations)
Car 11C (BC James Dalton, Chief of Marine Operations)
Car 12 (AC Stephen Raynis, Chief of Safety and Inspectional Services)
Car 13 (AC Thomas Jensen, Chief of Fire Prevention)
Car 13A (AC Richard Tobin, Assistant Chief of Fire Prevention)
Car 13B (DAC Joseph Woznica, DAC of Fire Prevention)
Car 14 (Chief Fire Marshal Robert Byrnes)
Car 15 (AC Thomas Galvin, Chief of Training)
Car 15A (DAC James Mooney, Chief of Fire Academy)
Car 16 (AC Robert Boyce Jr., Chief of Communications)
Car 17 (BC Michael Gala Jr., Chief of  Personnel)

Does anyone happen to have a link/list to the car designations/assignments?  Would be very helpful to reference when hearing the cars respond over the scanner on their role.  So, just looking for their designations mainly, names are nice but not required.  Seems like the firebellclub link is no longer accessible.

Thank you for the suggestion.  I have been using this site for reference but noticed that a couple cars from yesterday's 6th Alarm were not listed and seems like this site is a bit outdated.  Cars that were not listed:  22C, 2H.

Couple of changes that came out recently 6/18

* No more SOC Support trucks on any of the responses

* Minor Technical Response
-Now a 5-7 signal with the special units

* Boat in Distress
-Now a 5-7 Signal with the boats. No other SOC Units

*Any unit can now transport a collapse rig whether they have a 2nd chauffeur or not. Nearest available unit if Primary transport is not available.

 "capthale", I believe SIX lengths of 1 3/4" hose can be stretched before a 2 1/2" length of hose must be used.

 But maybe one of the FDNY guys can confirm that for us.
