From Bill's reports from 2014 through 2017 - SI fire activity significantly lower this year - approximately 33% drop.  It should be increasing with expanding population, continued development and aging of older neighborhoods.  I haven't looked at other boros. 

            10-75s    Multiples    Avg/Month
2014        162         15            15
2015        144         15            13
2016        151         16            14
2017*      104           9              9    * December incomplete

Total        561         55            13

 The month of December, 2017 has been one of the busiest and most tragic months for the FDNY in a long time.

 The Fifth Alarm in the Bronx on Prospect Ave claiming the lives of 12 people, including 4 or 5 children, being one of the worst fires in decades. With the members of the FDNY working under record cold temperatures and windy conditions.

 Of course despite this tragic event, it could have been worse. I'm sure our prayers and sympathy goes out to all of the family members and friends who have suddenly been hit with this overwhelming loss.

 Perhaps the last fatal fires with a large life loss to civilians might go back to the LaHoya Social Club on Jerome Ave and 173 St (?). I think the loss of 6 civilians in that fire. Of course just prior to that in 1990 (?) was the Happyland Social Club fire on Southern Blvd and East Tremont Ave. An arson fire in which 87 people died. All of these fires within only a few blocks, or a mile or so of each other.

 In addition, I read of another serious fatal fire in Brooklyn last night (12/29) on Patchen St adding to the loss. Both fatal fires listed as 10-41 code 1, indicating the possibility of arson.

 In addition to these fires, in one 24 hour period, there were 23 - - 10-75s or all hands fires, 1 second alarm, 2 third alarms, and 1 fourth alarm - city wide.. In addition we read of a train accident and a ferry boat incident.

 I have ALWAYS considered the members of the FDNY the BEST. I base that on my decades of chasing fires as a buff throughout the city. They are the best trained and certainly the most experienced in their field.

 I also feel the same way about the members of the FDNY/EMS, the Fire Dispatchers, and the NYPD. Together, a group of individuals who are SECOND TO NONE. And I'm pretty sure that anybody who has followed them like I have would agree.

 As this year comes to an end, let me also THANK THE MEMBERS HERE who do such a GREAT JOB in posting the jobs, rundowns, the videos and news stories. So many of us throughout the country and even the world follow the FDNY through your postings.

 Thanks to FDNY Lt Tommy Bendick for making this all possible. Not only has he given us this site, but indirectly he has made it possible for so many of us to become good friends. Guys that none of us would know of if not for this site. All having the same interest in the FDNY.

 The December, 2017 count will conclude in a few days. I wish there was a way of telling how many lives the FDNY rescued and people that are alive today because of them. I've been told that one FDNY company made 8 rescues in just a few weeks.

Thought I would add another Fatal fire that most folks may not remember.
This occurred Oct 25,1976 around 2:30am in a Social Club at 1003 Morris Ave. I was working the Midnight shift
at the Bronx Communcations office. The first call to the Bronx CO was via  ERS box
They stated people jumping from a building on fire on Morris ave and 165st.
As the alarm was being transmitted every phone was ringing reporting the same. In those days
Rescue 3 was housed at Eng93 and Ladder 45 - So knowing what we had from the phone calls
Rescue 3 was speical called via Bronx dispatchers.  Anyway  25 died and 24 injured. That is a night
I will never forget.

I Also want to thank everyone who puts lots of time and effort to make this Forum the best !!!

Happy New Year ! Stay Well and Safe.

Thanks for the fire history, Maxima.  Most remember the Bronx Happy Land social club fire in 1990 which killed 87. 

     

The Bronx Social Club and Happy Land fires were both tragic events for victims, families and FDNY members.

RIP - all who were lost and members now gone who worked these tragic fires.

 I too remember that.

 I think the next day I took a ride down there. It was a time when the fire activity was starting to pick up on the west side of Webster Ave. 92/44/B17 was starting to get really busy.

 The fire was just about 2-3 blocks south of 92s quarters. I saw a metal awning filled with dents in it. From talking with the guys at 92/44 they told me that was from people jumping out of windows landing it as they were pulling up.

 The Fire Activity for December, 2017 will be posted shortly. I think when the numbers come out, it will show December, 2017 to be one of the busiest months in a long time.

2014-2017 FDNY fire activity (Bill's 2017 data vs FDNY NYC Data statistics):

          2014                           2015                            2016                           2017

          MULT 10-75 TOTAL   MULT 10-75 TOTAL   MULT  10-75  TOTAL   MULT  10-75  TOTAL

SI         16    152    168       18     149     167            16      147     163       11      109     120

QN        53    522    575       47     568     615            45      546     591       35      556     591

MN        38    439    477       27     464     491            37      376     413       29      343     372
     
BK         53    780    833      64      778     842           52       697     749       64     676      740

Looks like:

     - Total number of City Wide serious fires dropped in 2016 (9%) and again 2017 (5%)
     - SI (28%) and MN (24%) experienced significant drops in serious fire activity
     - BK and BX had more multiples
     - QN had drop in multiples
     - BX had drop in 10-75s
