 I know that over the years there has been an EXCELLENT BOOK written by a guy named James Griffinths, who I believe is an HONORARY Deputy Chief within the FDNY.

 That book, the latest version being the FDNY Operational Reference Book - 11th edition, was released in April, 2017.

 There are facts and details of just about any question regarding the latest apparatus, equipment, tactics, policies, etc etc of the FDNY, including FDNY/EMS.

 I believe one of the places it can be purchased is through the FDNY Foundation, the official non profit organization of the FDNY.

 The address is:
  FDNY Foundation
  9 Metro Tech Center
  #5E-9
  Brooklyn, NY 11201

 Phone (718) 999-0779

FDNY Bookstore I believe is the cheapest place to purchase it, think I paid 29.95 and got it in 4-5 days. The fire-police-ems bookstore is another source but costs more.

The “Division Task Force” components cited above are not “Decon Task Force” components, and are not involved in Decon Operations.

The units shown are the Fire elements of the Division Counter Terrorism Rescue Task Force program. Each 11-person Rescue Task Force includes Fire, EMS, and NYPD Strategic Response Group personnel.

Best book I've seen on big-city firefighting (I was a suburban vollie in northern Delaware for 25 years).  At the time, we were an all-Mack company with four engines, an aerialscope and a heavy rescue.  Those were the days.
