Staffed units with citywide specialized responsibilities (Marine, Rescue, earlier Squads, RAC, etc) have historically had their own numbering series.

Engines and Ladders and Battalions are numbered geographically by boro. (MN/BX, BK/Q, SI) 

Dual staffed units (Foam, SOC Rapid Response, Decon, HazMat Tech, etc) tend to be numbered with their full time unit.

Units that are frequently separately staffed get their own numbers. (Brush)

 Also, with the help of Chief "68jk09", Squad 1 was organized after the closing of then Engine 269.

 As I remember it, once Squad 1 was organized due to local residents opposing the Eng 269 closing, the agreement was to keep Squad 1 for responses only in it's 1st, 2nd, and 3rd due response area as a firefighting company. Not to be assigned to any other areas beyond that response area.

 However, "The Peoples Firehouse" began because of the closing of Engine 212. Where the citizens decided to occupy that firehouse and not let the city close it. I know that this topic has been discussed here as well.

 Our discussions today of the forming of a new Squad Company for Staten Island, just as the forming of Squad 1, and the story of "The Peoples Firehouse" will all be forgotten unless there is strong effort to preserve that for those who follow us.

 And regarding history, reply #88 by "raybrag" here, you can find a little information of just what he might have been referring to when he said: "Squad 154 Where Are You" ? (see: Television from a different time" reply # 30). 
 "A Class Call", Ray.

Engine 154 has been chosen.
I wonder if the members of E-154 will receive any priority for staffing the new squad.  Does anybody know the actual procedure for choosing members for the squad company?

When E41 became SQ41 - spots were initially offered to any members of E41 that wanted to stay - don't know if that's still the way?

Yes they would if they choose to undergo all of the additional training and have 5 or more years on the job.

I don't think that the extra pay for SOC members was in place at the time of formation of the 5 squads from Engine Cos.

Yes most likely 168 will get the foam rig

Does it stay Foam 154 or become Foam 168
Remember to take it coming in
