Not sure about the hose bridge for the Trolley's but the Satellites in the FDNY do carry a hose bridge for use if needed.....more so for apparatus moving nearby rather than general vehicular traffic flowing thru .

These days are my early buffing days, as I'm 15 right now and plan on joining the FDNY, and from reading the earlier posts it looks like things have changed since. In my spare time, I drew a picture of ladder 3 because they're my local fire house and decided to bring it to them one day as a gift. I rode my bike over and found that they were on a run so I waited a few minutes until they returned. As they were walking into the station I approached one of the guys and gave the picture to him. He thanked me and invited me to the station where they gave me a ladder 3 shirt, but I had to go someplace else so I left afterward. A week later I went back and asked to take a picture of the drawing in their station. It was freezing cold that day so my phone was already dead because of the cold, but I anticipated that so I brought a charger and stayed a bit. The guys there were super nice and gave me some water and cookies and I stayed for like an hour just talking with the guys until they had to go pick up drycleaning or something. I've gone back a few times now and hung out with this one firefighter who's super nice and always invites me in and to come back. The guys over at ladder 3 have only made me want to be a firefighter even more due to their hospitality and great attitudes.

 I wanted to pass this on.

 One of the retired FDNY WAR YEARS Firefighters asked me if I knew of anybody who had "Home Made Movies" of these busy years during the 60s and 70s. Apparently there is some interest in making some type of movie about these FDNY War Years Firefighters.

 I'm sure that perhaps another problem might be is that video film would start to lose its quality over so many years, unless they had been put on some kind of digital disc. etc.
