The last incident we had was the microburst that occurred in Middle Village and Forest Hills.....It contuined out east as a tornado in Flushing and Bayside...........The Reserve Engine that is located in Engine 291 which is the next company west from us...........That unit was manned by Overtime members.......I beleive that as stated by tbendick these companys that will be activated for this storm will again be staffed by Overtime Officers, Chauffers and members........Last time the Divs and Batts put out the calls to companys requesting OT volunteers......Atleast this time there was enough time to put this in place since this storm has been known about.

Don't want to sound stupid, but I'm trying to figure out what runs as these unique units... I'm guessing the Sand vehicle is just the ATRV stationed at E329 normally. As for the Swift Water Teams, what vehicles are those?

If its the same as last yeaR Swit water rescue was a spare pumper with a inflatable boat strap to the hose bed.

The 5man engines were per the list from the IAP. They didn't follow the C-11 or C60 so it's not the normal 5man engines.  My company would be C11 but was not giving a 5th man for the storm.
