Still playing russian roulette w/the BX RRVs filling in for transcare & reducing the available SSL Second pieces.....they should have activated fully manned Reserve ENGs in the affected areas.

I could have swore I just saw a bunch of all white ambulances lettered for FDNY on the side of the Jersey Turnpike at Campbell Freightliner in Monroe. Am I crazy or are they ditching the red?

It "MIGHT" be a rush order because of the transcare bankruptcy..... after 9-11 several Excursion's were purchased w/sirens & light packages to replace destroyed Chief's Rigs but they were several different solid colors & not completely repainted until much later.

The 15 ambulances are leased vehicles to be placed strategically in the city.

Now the question is who will man them ? & will they replace the RRVs in use in the BX now ?

My friend in the academy said a lot of guys from the current class may be sent up there. They should be getting out in the next week or so. But until then its guys working OT. Does anyone have any pictures of these leased trucks?

Maimo is taking over a lot of the special events contracts. Does anyone know if the leased ambulances are on the road yet?
