Thanks Mack for the S.I. Quad history. I do remember Quads also assigned E96 in the Bronx when they were a single company house on Bruckner Blvd, E251 and E312 also single houses in Queens.
E96's quad (#2613) was reassigned to E310 with E96 getting E310's standard 1951 WLF pumper. That same quad was later sent to E323 with E310 getting E323's 1953 WLF.   Engine 251 had their quad for a long time, I believe until 1968.  ;)

Thanks Gman.  Do you know how long some of the other Quads stayed in service where assigned.  And if they were 2nd pieces?  I think Engine 161 had their Quad for a long time but I don't think Ladder 82 kept theirs long.

I believe many of the old Quad debates were similar to the current Quint debates in departments.  Is versatility good and what do you give up to be versatile?
  E161 had their quad until 1961 when they got former E296's 1951 WLF which was right after L81 came over from E159.   I don't know how long E152 had their quad but my lists show E289's Mack C was reassigned to E152 when 289 got a new 1963 Mack C.

Thanks Gman.

   I was told by a retired chief that the WLF quads had "pump and roll" capability but they were extremely long and sometimes got bogged down. ;)

Maybe we have just a little too much freedom.

Willy, I couldn't disagree with you more.  One of the very best things about this country is the ability to express your opinions without fear or retribution. While you and Jack are free to disagree with anything that these players (or anyone else, for that matter) say or do, they have an ABSOLUTE right to say or do them as long as they are within the law.  As for the situation regarding our Viet Nam vets, I am one of them, and I remember what it was like.  There's no comparison between being spit upon, called a "baby killer" and some of the other vile things that went on and a group of men kneeling or linking arms when the national anthem is played.

Don't ever forget the words of Evelyn Beatrice Hall: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it".

That is why I spent 21 years in the United States Air Force, and I'd spend another 21 years there now if they'd let me . . . to defend your right to complain about these athletes.
Well said Ray. This is still a free country. And thank you for your service

With that Quad bouncing around in southern Brooklyn, you would think that getting the Quad was a sort of punishment. My dad's company in Manhattan had a brand new Mack, circa 1941, and somehow a Chief got a hair up, well you know, and when my old man came back from his swing there sat an old beat up Ahrens-Fox.
They had it for a few years.
