Yonkers has 11 Engines including the squad 11, they have 6 Ladder companies, 2 of the Ladder companies are Ladder Towers 71 & 75, also Rescue 1. They have reserve rigs they use which are staffed by recalled members. I would think the entire on duty 11 and 6 are there plus many surrounding paid departments such as new Rochelle, eastchester, mount vernon, Scarsdale, Hartsdale, Greenville and white plains. I’m sure i missed a few departments. Not sure who’s covering Yonkers other than recalled units. 10:15 news still shows fire throughout the entire top floor and cockloft of this U shaped building.

PIX 11 News: Called this a General Alarm, what would that be equivalent to (FDNY)?

Good point. Was YFD part of the military many years ago? Maybe they had generals rather than chiefs back then.
