Thanks for the info. Wonder why Boston is holding onto the one K M E

As it’s been relayed, the KME aerial has a different motor than the ones that have all the issues, it’s currently assigned to L16, I believe the members at 16 like their truck, but with the way BFD buys trucks they could easily add an additional ladder to make a full Metro front line fleet.

Dan,  your TB/ Norton story was a Classic.  The LT must have been beside himself.  Tommy is the Only Fireman I know to be assigned to Ladders 111, 112 & 113.  Finishing his career in Squad 252.  We (when I was a Fireman in 111) used to say, if we were trapped, we want Norton to come and get us. I don’t recall the story of your detail to our place But both Companies had the Highest respect for each other. I look back to my Brooklyn time as a Fireman in TL -111 and the Captain of TL -120 (for 10 years) and think about the GREAT Trucks we ran in with and all the Trucks I covered in throughout the Boro, listed in order, Ladders: 102, 103, 105, 107, 108, 112, 113, 123, 124, 132, 147, 157, 159, 170, 174, 175, 176.  That is Some collection of Truck Companies. I hope I didn’t leave anyone in the “Hood” out. The level of Firemen was the highest and the quality of these individuals were even better. Told someone down in Florida yesterday, the ultimate compliment from the Brothers is,” He’s a Good Fireman”

As a side note,  I spent my first 11 years on the Job on the Mainland, the BX. Another day and another story...

Thankfully he was only grazed twice, walked out of the hospital this morning. The 16th was a bit crazy last night, there was another shooting close to our boarder with the 11th.
