I thought that the 10-30 was originally implemented as a way to reduce the number of "transmit the box" transmissions on the radio and thereby reduce the number of all-hands. The idea being, if you can hold it with 2&2 do so and that also allowed the 3rd due engine to remain in service and available for another run. Also adaptive response (i.e. 2&1) was in operation at this time so a 10-30 was literally a request for the 2nd due truck.

Believe me, it originally meant a working fire. At that time the Dispatcher would ensure a 3+2+BC response. Was changed to the request for 2+2+BC when the 3rd due Engine became the "Reserve" Engine on pulled boxes.

If my memory serves me correctly the fire at O'Neal's Bar & Grill on Columbus Avenue 72-73 Streets in Manhattan in the 70's started as a 10-30 & went to a 3rd.

I remember the Super-Pumper was at the corner of Columbus Ave. & 72st at a high-pressure hydrant.

In those day's, there was no 10-75, the 10-30 went to a 7-5 and thereby came the use of 10-75, which coincidentally or not was/is part of the 7-5 signal.

10-Codes went into effect 11/14/1969. At that time 10-30 was Working Fire and called for a 3&2 plus BC response, no Rescue, possibly the assigned Squad.  Some time (maybe a few years) later the 10-75 was instituted calling for the same response, at that time 10-30 was reduced and required a 2&2&1 response.
