the car fire in which tony shands was struck and killed generated the job to change car fires from a 10-19(one unit) to a 10-18(1E & 1L)

I also think this incident caused the removal of the rear booster line from future rigs, continue to Rest In Peace FF Shands

What year was it that members could no longer ride the back step. It was mid 70's wasn't it?

I was in 94 Engine in the Hunts Point section of the South BX in 1978 and we would have 4 guys on the back step. 2 SCBAs in the hose bed and we were ready to go. I was coming back from Manhattan on the subway, going to the Firehouse. I have shorts, sneakers and t-shirt on. 94 is driving by, jump on back step with My Boys and go back to quarters...
