I believe this rig started out as E-277, then became E-242, then a salvage unit.  FDNY bought 5 crew cab Mack R pumpers in 1969-70 on a trial basis. After its service, one of these sat for years in a shed at LaGuardia Airport.  Among some of the other units that had one at one time or another were E-38 and E-209.

When SQ*1 was reorganized in DEC 1977 they were assigned the '69 Mack R that had been 242....also i remember Mack Rs being assigned to 91-2 & 303.

I strongly suggest purchasing the "Fire Department of New York- an Operational Reference, 11th edition. Do a search, several possible buying options will appear.

 Yes "grump" that is an EXCELLENT BOOK which includes a huge amount of facts and information on the FDNY.

 One buying option is the "FDNY shop" at www.FDNYshop.com

Rescue Battalion 2, Division 20 and Battalion 73 are alll reserve battalions / divisions. They do not have assigned locations or vehicles and would utilize a spare Battalion / Division vehicle and can be placed in service whereever the dept sees fit depending on the reason why they are activating them. I also second investing in a copy of the operational reference guide. It had an incredible amount of information and answers to many questions you might have.

Also Carolina Skiff teams are units that are deployed during bad storms synch as hurricanes etc. Carolina skiff is the boats manufacturer. I believe they are small aluminum flat bottom boats.  they usualy transport the boat with what ever vehicle is available to be assigned to them. In the past that’s included spare engines, training engines and pick up trucks

I have a copy of it but it does not say anything about the skiff teams, battalion/division spare units.
Thank you for your informative replies.

Does the FDNY have any Reserve/Spare High Rise Units?
