Not sure how to share the Facebook link. Also in the comments a few people are saying that the current rescues when replaced are going to remain fully stocked. I would have to guess that wouldn’t be the case but maybe someone was could elaborate that knows more than I
. Yes , that is true ,each Rescue will be keep their old rig as a fully equipped spare , will make doing a rig change over super quick and also SOC will be able to staff an addition Rescue comp much quicker too....like R-6 is used now .  For major incidents, high profile events , POTUS standbys . As it is now , there are 3 rescue spare rigs and one reserve (R-6) ,so by doing this they are only adding one ...maybe two ( they might still keep the Pierce as a spare ) rigs to the fleet .

That's certainly going to increase the cost of buying the new rescues considerably. I have no idea what the total cost of equipment they curious but I'm sure several hundred thousand dollars at least.

I did speak to a Lt. at R-4 a while back and the long term goal is to have all the Rescues like Rescue 2 and 3 were they are alone and the Collapse Rescue in the same house.

The new R5 is wending its way toward its new home . . . stopped in Tennessee for the night.  Terry Stokes photos. Probably the last time you'll ever see a photo of this rig with the back doors closed.

That series of photos of R-5 traveling to New York are interesting. Every other FDNY vehicle has had all of their FDNY emblems covered while being transported. This 1 doesn't, I wonder what story behind that is?

Current R1 firehouse could become an Eng 2 firehouse for the Hudson Yards and a new R! firehouse built elsewhere along the lines of R2 firehouse.

So the current Rescues are 2011 rigs, what is the lifespan of FDNY Rescues? Is it shorter than normal apparatus? As by my reckoning the current Ferraras would not be due to be replaced until 2022??

Might be shorter than the regular apparatus, Rescue 5’s new rig is almost done if not done already.

I reckon mile for mile R5 rig must be up there running into its Brooklyn boxes, i reckon followed by R2 then R3.

I do not have enough knowledge of R4 to comment.

I believe it’s every 7-8 years for the rescues
