" As per Sept-Oct. Issue of FAJ, the add-on order for eight regular 2000gpm pumpers to Seagrave has been changed to seven regular 2000gpm pumpers, and 1000gpm rescue pumper. Possibly another Squad coming online? S.I.? Any scuttlebut? "

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?

Ok, l found it... page 12 in " Apparatus " topic " Engine 165 to Squad 165 "started January 28, 2014 .... probably explained there, there's 10 pages to read there... emphasis on reply 25 & 33 - 34. ....

Photo was sent to me. I know photographer



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.
It is what it is.... a done deal ..... i hope it benefits S. I.

Sometimes, apparatus and house assignments defy any logical reason.  About 20 - 25 years ago, a number of new, larger, Brush Fire Units were acquired.  Logic would say that E165 was an ideal house to station one at. 

But, the story goes, it wouldn't fit in 165 quarters because the Chief Medical Officer's car was stored there - and then the car would have to be parked outside the firehouse - and she didn't want to have to get into a cold car in the winter.  So, her car stayed warm at E165 and the BFU was shipped off to a North Shore engine - likely as far removed from any brush area as you can get on Staten Island.

Not to put a damper on this "new" company but it seems the upper echelon and politicians are hoodwinking the public. They, the public, don't know the difference between a squad company and an engine company. They'll look and see that they have a new shiny fire engine at the neighborhood fire house. Now, should theses quarters also house a spare or reserve engine they'll think that they have two companies therein. What they don't know is that the Squad will be all over the borough with responses. If, God forbid, there is a job in the neighborhood and it takes the second due engine time to get there they'll be in an uproar because the neighborhood company should have been there in minutes. Yes, having a Squad for S.I. is a good thing but what does it accomplish by taking a first due unit to do that? Believe me I'm all for it and I'm not nitpicking but in an area where units are few and far between there is a good chance of problems.

ya, ideally they would have added it instead of replacing an engine company with it.
