The final roster will be selected.  They will attend HAZMAT and Rescue School in the near future.  Then the company will be put online.  It's a few months away.

Rumor has it that E154 will become Squad 8.

Most of the members of the existing squad probably like with are and don't want the commute all the way out to the island for their job.  Besides, there are rules written as a contract about relocating members and you just can't pick up and move them someplace else without a justifiable reason.  You also would be breaking up teams that work well together.

There will be some existing SQ Members in the new SQ when it opens after the new Members are trained.

I'm sure quite a few Squad 1 and 18 members may be SI residents so if they trade off less work for a better commute then maybe they will transfer into the new squad.

So if a member is coming from and engine company do they go through a ladder company training first and then squad company training and vice versa or do they just go straight into a squad style training

You are trained in probie school on engine and ladder company training. And if youíre in a double house you end up working across the floor a decent amount and stay on top of truck work.  Or if youíre a just a good guy on the job you stay reading and drilling on different aspects of the job because thatís what you do.

The new SQ*8 Rig is the former ENG*165 Rescue Pumper....165 already has 154s old rig & 154 is using a spare for now.

That looks like a brand new Rig? I thought 165 got a Rescue pumper for a reason are they going to get them a new one?

they probably prettied it up and gave it a good going over....
somewhere in these articles it says why they wound up with that rig, .... l'll see if l can find the post from 2013 - 14 or whenever ... otherwise someone here will certainly know the specifics.
