Squad 154's location on SI places it further away than Squad 1 for all Brooklyn locations - even those right over the VN Bridge.

I can't see 154 getting sent to brooklyn div 8 boxes unless 1 & maybe 252 is out. 


Also for the person asking about the rig, I would imagine they will get a spare squad apparatus until a new one is delivered

154’s location on the island makes it no more than 15-20 mins away from any corner of the island. Close proximity to West Shore EPXWY and Staten Island EXPWY make this possible. They’d also be 1st due to SI Mall. Large majority of 154’s first Due area is made up of industrial and brush. They were also 1st due to the 5th alarm 2 weeks ago.

Pic is from Instagram. Banner says E-154’s last parade in the grass. 154 is in the Travis, SI 4th of July parade every year. Next year’s parade  it’ll be Squad 154. Engine 154’s nickname is “Splendor in the grass” - they’re quartered in an swampy/tall grass/marsh area of SI.

Anybody know what you’re going to do with the extra Apparatus they have the foam truck,brush truck and that other truck to carry that small brush truck that small boat/ zodiac  would come in handy I’m sure they’ll probably keep that..

And parts of the movie "Splendor in the Grass" were filmed in Travis.  The location of house used was on the corner of Victory Boulevard and Roswell Avenue, now an empty lot.

"Splender in the Grass" is a movie filmed close to current E 154 quarters.  Movie was released in 1961.  Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty were stars.  House used was at 4144 Victory Blvd.  It had an attached store in front.

With S154 coming into service, will E165 retain their Haz Tech responsibilities and/or their rigs?  Thanks!

My guess is E165 will remain as a Haz Tech Comp and R-5 will  no longer be a primary haz mat responce , just like the rest of the other Rescues .
