l figured it would be Seagrave and wondered the same thing about the switch being temporary since they said a new apparatus would be purchased.

Why is everybody pushing so hard for 165 to get a new squad type rig ASAP?  They are the only and & Co. in the cities that I'm aware of that has a squad type rig, why should they be so special?  Especially now that there is going to be a true Squad on the island.

Well the Capt of that hmtu engine requested it for s reason that was to carry the extra gear I donít think they were trying to. A squad most  fire Dept are going rescue style engines anyways I bet in five Years fdny goes to an all rescue style engine. Iím just surprised the other hmtu engines didnít ask for one too

Why was fdny not prepared for this transition anyways? Weíre is the spare squad or reserve squad they could have used why take away from a unit that is already established. Poor planning just my opinion

It was announced in the paper as being Squad 8.
Since we all know how accurately newspapers report things I'm sure most of us took leave story about the new squad was a huge grain of salt!

Thew news media reported on the facts that were presented with the press conference, but sure, go ahead and baselessly blame the media for doing their job.

I don't see any reason why they wouldn't, they are going to remain a full-fledged rescue company.  That incident might changes that they may be pulled off the island a little more often during major incidents as long as the squad is still in service.

Rescue 5 is no longer a primary hazmat tech unit, and is only to be used if e165 is unavailable in SI,
And 250 and sq1&252 are unavailable in the 40,42&43 battalions

R-5 will be like all the rest of the Rescue Comp now , still trained as HazMat tech but won't be primary response , Sq-8 & E-165 will be primary for Haz Mat on. SI.
