It's probably much more efficient to use one from public works.  They use them regularly so they are kept in good running order and have multiple units that are already distributed between the boroughs.  FDNY would probably only have 1 or 2 and they would never be very close to where you needed them.  Also if they sit and are used on a regular basis their vacuum seals dry out and they are not as effective as one that is used regularly.

Please explain some of the uses of a vacuum truck

Pulling soil out of a collapsed trench is a good one. Mud out of  a trench or sewer.

.......   At the double fatal LODDs in the BX 99 CENT Store (continued REST IN PEACE Lt Carpluk & FF Reilly) a vacuum truck was also used to suck up a large amount of airesol cans that had fell into the cellar during the collapse of the first fl.
