Oh I know but letís just say Squad 8 is in Brooklyn on a fire, Engine 166 is on a EMS run and a fire comes in by Squad 8ís quarters. The next due Engine is at least 5 to 10 minutes away. One fire fatality in 154ís area after there disbanded.. Agree or disagree..

I don't know if this is still done but they used to team up engine companies for EMS runs. If a certain amount of engines were OOS for any reason, the remaining engines in that group were not available for EMS, only fire responses.

No longer done.  No more restriction on the engines going to Ems runs if the surrounding companies are out.   Also, 2nd due now goes on segment 1 when the first due is on another run, and the nearest available for entry, carry,  and Ems-rescue (PD 10-54R code)

After moving to their present firehouse in 1972, Engine 154 was disbanded for nearly six years from 1975 to 1981.

Yesterday I saw Squad 8 at the Rock in the traditional paint scheme, but today I say it going north bound on the FDR with a black stripe instead of the white.

Very cool! I like the Richmond on the side, Squad 1 has Brooklyn on their door. And I like the originated date on the side compartment. Exciting stuff
