l'm pretty sure it's just a chosen company nickname / motto as many of the companies choose.... but someone who knows more will give more input.

Its a good thing E319 is known as the "Lone Wolf"

Fire & Ice agent is mixed and pumped with a special hose and nozzle it is used for transformer fires
Remember to take it coming in

Is that similar to the additive for the Rapid Water system?

Con Ed has been using FireIce in NYC and Westchester for several years. When mixed with water it forms a gel that coats the electrical equipment and prevents it from arching without doing excessive damage to the electrical equipment.

In addition to the FDNY units that carry it, Con Ed's safety supervisors also carry it and can team up with an engine company to flow it from a handline.

Pics are from Instagram...E312 turning out of quarters to what I believe is the initial call for the explosion. Pic of the sky is what the company was responding into from quarters - heck of a view.
