Hazmat 1 did make it to this box. Saw them there and they said well over an hour on the road to get in. Guys were not looking forward to the even longer drive back.

For 12% extra pay they can sit and enjoy a nice ride back to Queens while everyone else is jackassing all over the city on gas leaks, water leaks, car accidents, ems runs and an occasional fire mixed in
I just want one more good fire

Regardless of where you are sent in the FDNY whether on an actual Run or a Relocation you are on the clock (they own you for your tour).... The Job is outside the FH & on the road going to something that is happening now or may happen along your travels back & forth...(i am not speaking directly to any posters on here but speaking from my own opinion) & before Haz*Mat & R*5 both were organized i w/R*2 responded to SI many times sometimes twice just in a 9X6 Tour for Fires ...Emergencies (most on the SIRT Staten Island Rapid Transit) all lines on ground level no Ell's.

And interesting to note that, for the most part, Hazmat is located in a somewhat centralized spot within the 5 boroughs. Itís only these parts of SI that you realize how far geographically you can be from the rest of NYC.
