 Whatever company is designated to be the Staten Island Squad Co., what happens to the guys that have been assigned to that company and are NOT interested in working a Squad ? Do they get preference on where they would want to be reassigned ?

 My guess is that a guy who has been assigned to that company for many years may NOT be as upbeat about this as everybody else.

 Are those members given any special consideration, as they are being removed from a place they might have enjoyed working for many years.

Squad going into Engine 154....good source.  Take it to the bank.   Not sure if converting 154 OR bringing In a completely new company and apparatus

''The money will fund ..., a brand new pumper-rescue truck, and auxiliary equipment needed to upgrade an existing Staten Island engine company into a specialized squad company.

what " already existing S.I. engine co.''  other than E. 165 , based on their apparatus, would qualify for such an upgrade ? Unless they plan to switch pieces with E. 154.

When they turned 18 Eng into a squad, those who wanted to leave were given their choice (up to a point...maybe not Ladder 44 😂😂)

You would want E165 to handle the squad and the haz mat duties?  Why?  They have funding for an entirely new apparatus and training.  SI will now have more of the resources they need.  154 close to highways and mid island
