I dont know about the barb assignments today but i remember years ago going a block or 2 farther West as an extra Truck while as CPT of 126 (before FAST's were strictly assigned as the next available LAD)  but i would agree generally 151 before 135 in that area.

I'm sure "mikeindabronx" will take this one in. Maybe get some updates later.

 Thanks Sig 73 as well.

Bill, sorry to disappoint you but I did not respond (I'm getting lazy in my old age)
If that job had been a little further east on Fordham Rd like over near White Castle, Uncle Wilfred would have taken it in.

L151 is assigned 3rd due unless they were busy. 135 not on the card.

Is is all this "Watch Line" business?  It seems that latley there have been a lot of jobs with Watch Lines - is this a new policy?

 I DNK if it's yet 'Policy' but; there have been a few 'Re-kindles' which created Problems.
 Better Watch-line Than Re-ignition.  ;)
Also - Marshals, DoB, etc .. have been rather busy lately, leaving FDNY to Maintain Watch/Custody of Damaged Bldg.s

I believe it may be just the opposite. The busy companies during the "war years" very rarely relocated. Units from low activity areas were relocated to the units in the busy area as per alarm assignment cards with the dispatcher using their authority to deviate from them.
  Now many of the old busy units areas have re-gentrified & many of the old "nice" neighborhood's with very little fire duty are now the "busy" areas.  So it looks like every company is up for grabs, no matter where they are.
   It used to be that the dispatchers & companies like Rescue & Squad would "feel" a certain area would be hot & sort of move closer to that area , just to get there faster.
   Many a time at a job we would say, " how'd you guys get here so fast"? That was how.
    Just my unscientific observation from retireville.
