Now they seem to have the FDNY color scheme:

Looks like they decided it was cheaper to keep the trucks looking the same as they were when they were part of FDNY.  Certainly cheaper and they have to watch the budget!

There has been an engine belonging to Corrections for many years on Rikers.

Does anyone know if the Corrections Officers assigned are trained by FD, does FD have a response matrix for Rikers and, if yes, do the FD personnel have any special training?
