I could be completely mistaken, but it appeared due to the Squad's positioning that it was being used in a live burn. Mind you it had no hose on from what I could see.

Does anyone know if Squad 8 is going to be a citywide response unit or restricted only to Staten Island?

I haven't seen anything official (maybe one of the FDNY members can chime in) but I would speculate that it will respond like any of the other squads do and be sent to wherever it's needed. The only possible restriction might be that it won't be used to fill in for another squad except in dire circumstances.

Has anyone ever determined what the reasoning (if any) was regarding the numbering for the new SI Squad?

Good Question.

The only reasoning l can see is that it will be the 8th Squad .

They might keep that engine number open so they might reactivate that company again at a later date

The area that engine 154 had, I believe that was the engine co the squad is replacing do they have another engine covering it as a first in now?

Squad 8 would still cover 154s area as 1st Due. They’ll go up to 3rd due boxes like the other squads. Only boxes they lost would be E154s 4th Due. Now if Squad 8 is out on a run, next Due would be 166 or 167 depending on where the box is. 154 has very large 1st due area but mostly industrial and not built up area - except for SI Mall and stores on Richmond Avenue corridor. That is built up. The mall just renovated.

E154 ran 1,740 runs in 2017 with 23 AH+. Wonder what SQ8 #s would be like.

 Thanks "FDNYSTATENISLAND" for your update concerning the new Squad 8.

 I remember a couple of guys telling me that it was a 25-30 minute run (under good traffic conditions) for Squad 1 to get to parts of Staten Island

Unless something changes between now and Dec10th , Sq-8 will only have first and second due engine boxes ...so will be a squad one what would have been 3rd due boxes .

So Staten Island is basically losing an Engine, Staten Island will need another Engine sooner rather than later.
