Map - 2014 All Hands Boxes
« on: August 14, 2014, 11:49:10 AM »
In an effort to see any patterns in FDNY fire activity, I have plotted all 2014 All Hands (or greater) Boxes in Google Maps.

I have posted it here in case anyone else is interested.
https://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/0/edit?authuser=0&hl=en&mid=z-slmQU3f8Io.kRP88PIOcocM

Please note; I am certain that there are errors and omissions.  I gathered all of the information from posts on this site and will continue to update the map until the end of the year.
Enjoy!

Color Key:
Red = All Hands
Blue = 2nd Alarm
Purple = 3rd Alarm
Yellow = 4th Alarm
Black = 5th Alarm or Incident of Greater Significance

Thank You all.

If anyone has an idea of information that you would like to see gathered in the future, please let me know.  I would like to collect data in 2015 that is not collected elsewhere (unit transmitting the 10-75, 1st, 2nd, & 3rd due, etc.).  Obviously I have no connection to FDNY, therefore the info that I collect would have to be from listening to radio transmissions.

Lots of fire duty in these areas also: Flatbush BK, Bed-Stuy BK, Borough Park/Sunset Park BK, Brownsville BK, the Corona QNS area and Jamacia QNS areas. Midtown and the Tribeca areas of MAN also look like their seeing more and more work lately. North Shore areas of SI such as New Brighton and Mariners Harbor are also seeing consistent work. South Shore of SI also seeing some evenly distributed jobs lately.

All of these areas have always been busy, this map shows their still pumping out jobs.

Battalions in the above areas include the: 21, 22, 23, 40, 48, 57, 50, 8, 9, 44, 33, 37.

Of course. Most any all hands could be a multiple without the professionalism of the firefighters throughout the city.

It was an inside joke.
