A General Alarm in Yonkers would mean all 11 Engines Companies,  6 Ladder Companies, & the Rescue are operating at the box.

A General Alarm for them means all of their companies are on scene. I believe the 10-30 (All Hands) is 4E, 2L, Sq-11, R-1 and both Battalions (1 as IC, 1 as Safety). Every additional alarm is 2E & 1L. They usually bring in M/A to back fill firehouses on a 3rd alarm. In this case it sounded like because it went from a 3rd to a 4th so quickly, they never got to request the first round of mutual aid before requesting the second round so it all came at once and most of it ended up going to the scene.

Being that about a week ago the FDNY gave Mutual-Aid to New Rochchell for a house fire, is it surprising that there was no Mutual-Aid from the FDNY for this job?

Mutual Aid is by request of the municipality. If no request then no response. Even though there is an annual inter agency operability drill at Randall’s Island for some reason FDNY is rarely called to assist along the borders. FYI the drill brings paid departments from Westchester to the Rock for drills with FDNY units. Not sure if there is a reason from a political standpoint or if payments are required but I can only think of 2 or 3 times in last 15 years that FDNY went into Yonkers.

Boro call that mutual aid was provided to Mount Vernon right on the Bronx line of service. Came in as a phone alarm.

Sorry, wrong city - But even if the BX gets the call, doesn't the MA have to be requested/approved for/by MV?

I was wrong earlier Boro , it was a Verbal from the Battalion.

Verbal from B-15 for 3&2 to stand by to assist Mount Vernon with a house fire driven by high winds. (5 Johnson St.)

B-15: Transmit a box for a working fire in Mount Vernon area, the fire is located at Johnson St & W. Kingsbridge Rd. - 14:09

B-15: Using 2&2 assisting MV to gain control, making sure there's no exposure problems. - 14:21

A General Alarm in Yonkers is a 5th plus recall of off-duty members. We had White Plains E66 acting E303. I heard "Squad to Battalion, we have fiyah EVERYWHERE in this cockloft!" when I tuned into Fireground.
