I was looking at pics of a job in queens and seen engine 265. If the rig was destroyed by flooding by the super storm how can it be in service or are they waiting for their new engine?

Posted in the other thread, some were severely damaged but repaired and returned to service which is probaly the case with 265

For those of you who don't subscribe to Fire Apparatus Journal, Jack Lerch reports the following in his column in the March/April edition:

"As a result of Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, the Department had a total of 115 vehicles damaged.  These included 29 pumpers, 11 rearmounts, 8 tower-ladders, 5 rescues and haz-mat rigs, 14 ambulances, 6 battalion vehicles, and 42 other vehicles, which included special units, passenger cars, gators and service vehicles.

As of press time, of the 115 vehicles, 56 were so severely damaged that they are awaiting salvage and will be disposed of.  These include:  six 1998 Seagrave 1000 gpm pumpers (Reserve 521, a training rig and four spares), a 2000 Seagrave assigned to Training, plus the 2002 Luverne 1000 gpm pumper assigned as the funeral caisson; four spare Seagrave 100-foot rear-mounts (a 1994, a 1995, a 1996 and a 1999), plus the 2011 Ferrara 100-foot rear-mounts assigned to Ladders 81 and 137; and Ladder 161's 2001 95-foot tower.

Among the special units destroyed are three 1997 International/Saulsbury brush units assigned to Brush Fire Units 1, 2, and 6, plus a 2002 Ford/Firematic brush unit assigned to Brush Fire Unit 4; a 1987 retrofitted Mack pumper assigned as Foam Carrier 321; Engine 329's All Terrain Response Vehicle, a 2007 Ford F550; the spare Thawing Unit, a 1989 GMC/Saulsbury; Engine 165's Haz-Mat Tender, a 2004 Freightliner/LDV; the Scuba Unit, a 2000 Workhorse; Engine 154's 2004 Ford F450 ATV Transport Vehicle and 2004 Polaris six-wheel-drive brush fire ATV; Tactical Support Unit 2's 2002 International/Saulsbury; a 1988 Mack heavy wrecker, and a 2001 GMC light wrecker, both assigned to Fleet Services.

The EMS vehicles include seven Ford/Horton ambulances (three 2004, a 2005, a 2006, a 2008 and a 2009).  The remainder of the vehicles awaiting salvage include battalion vehicles, passenger cars, SUVs, gators, pick-up trucks, service vehicles and vans."
