NY-TF1
« on: September 12, 2018, 01:20:47 AM »
Are there any specific (FDNY) units attached to the NY-TF1 (FDNY & NYPD USAR TF)? What vehicles do they use? And how do they operate?

 I know most task force have two or three tractor-trailer rigs with 48 or 53 foot trailers with their gear inside and some have flatbeds And pelletized   equipment so they can also be transported via C-17 Chicago task force actually has some dedicated equipment with box trucks in flatbeds they have a pretty unique set of equipment Iím not sure exactly what New York has but it would great if some people had some pictures of their trucks they use  I donít think they use any FDNY trucks they probably might use some reserve rescue trucks but they should have some dedicated trucks just for the Usar response

If anybody has some pics of the equipment that is used that would be great or if anybody has any video that would be even better

Are the members of NYTF1 on the clock or must they use their accrued leave for these operations?
