I didn't know E-43 had it.  I assumed the black was to match the black hoods that S.O.C. seems to prefer.
the black hoods allow them to go in deeper, and hotter
I just want one more good fire

If I understand this the engine company was dis-banded and the squad company was organized. If it responds as a first or second due @ a fire and is committed there is no squad available. Is that correct?

No, if Sq-8 is operating as a engine at a fire or other emergency ,Sq -1 will be assigned just like it was and just as it is with the other Squads.

Seems like a partial victory, yes you now have a squad but you lost an engine company. and if the unit is now being used as an engine you now need Squad-1 to respond. Look I am no expert on FDNY, far from it, but it just does not make sense to me. IMHO!

It looks like they wasted no time in removing the "Engine 154" from the building.
I'd like to think Engine 154's members did it but I don't know.
