No, just like the pic, they had a rubber bumper filled with H20. BTW, I did one, maybe two night tours riding in the bread truck. Very uncomfortable, nowhere for the tech to sit comfortably.


Obviously a Bx rig. Our rig had hardly any lettering on the door, real bare bones, but rubber bumpers!... Liberty 374!

 In talking with one of the FDNY/EMS members recently, he told me that the new PRUs (paramedic response units) are now operating out of various EMS Stations. I understand at this time, the Bronx has THREE such units in service. I'm not sure of the other boro's.

 As I understand it, on an ALS call; One BLS Ambulance, with two BLS members responds, along with One of these PRUs with Two ALS Medics. If ALS transport to the hospital is necessary, the Two ALS Medics will ride in the back of the ambulance treating the patient.

 One of the BLS members will drive the ambulance, while the other BLS member will follow the ambulance to the hospital with the PRU vehicle.

 It seems to me, although this program is still in it's very early stages, that this program might just free up more ambulances available throughout the city.

 Of course any member here who may want to add or make a correction to this, we certainly welcome that.

As of October every ALS unit in Division 2 (Bronx) has 100% switched over to PRU

 Thank you Phil, "Lebby" for that info.

 If this program works out in NYC, I'm sure that other cities with busy EMS units will follow.

 NYC has always been a trend setter whether it'd be EMS, PD, or FD. They try it out in their pilot programs, evaluate it, and then decide to continue or abandoned it. Other cities have the advantage of putting into effect what has been proven successful without going through their own success or fail process.

 Looking back when it comes to the fire service, the FDNY was some of the first (certainly here in the northeast) to bring in tower ladders, use of power saws, bunker gear, 1 3/4" hose, the FAST Co, the use of handie talkie radios, even fire ground terminology, etc.

 I feel if it works for the FDNY, NYPD, or the FDNY/EMS, - "it will work anywhere".

Uncle Willy,
Innovation in the fire service happens everywhere and at different times.

What you said about FDNY innovations and firsts is true . . . mostly.

Coming from a department that had its fair share of innovations, many of which were carried back by FDNY members who rode with us or our members who later joined FDNY, there have been some innovations in FDNY that came from other departments. 

FDNY usually field tests and pilots all new ideas regardless of their success (or failure) elsewhere.  That is fair and practical and they have the resources to do it.

FDNY has also tried ideas that Ďwill never work here.í  (articulated booms for example) That doesnít mean everywhere.

Bunker gear, snorkels, rabbit tools, ladder manifolds and PRUís were not that new and not unproven when they came to FDNY.  Some worked out, some did not.  Progress is progress no matter from when or from where it originates.   Ideas can evolve and improve when adapted by new departments.

Thanks, Ray.  You're picture says it all.
