 A few years ago spent a little time buffing in the area. A Dunks (Dunkin Donuts) on Atlantic Ave near the Brooklyn/Queens border was my spot. I got to see some of those companies operate at a few 2 1/2 frames. It was different from the six brick of the Bronx and Harlem I was used to. I learned alot from watching those componies perform.

  Whether its the row frames of Brooklyn, the six bricks of the Bronx, or the frames in Queens, the FDNY has it all. Just the perfect spot if you want to see and understand the way firefighting is supposed to be.

  Even a brush fire once in awhile as was posted here.

  And as I said many times, there's some great firefighters and officers on the job here in Connecticut today, all because they also spent some time following the FDNY and seeing how it should be done. (And there's a lot of Ole' Retired Farts too).

  Keep up the Good Work. A lot of people are alive today because of the FDNY and a lot of good firemen learned by watching.
