Has there ever been any consideration for SI to have its own Squad Company. Just from what little I know of SI,with its high potential for serious Haz-Mat and Water Rescue jobs,along with the working structure fires,just seems such a response for SQ1 and leaves that section of BKLYN uncovered. Just a food for thought.

Rescue 5 is a Haz Tech unit, and I understand that all the Rescue companies are trained for water rescue.

That's been a rumor for years. 168 was also brought up at one time in the rumor mill.
