Bill,

All the statistical work you do is superb.  I hope you're archiving it because it'll make a helluva resource for researchers, training officers, historians (especially neighborhood historians) and anyone else interested in the Fire Service and daily life in New York City.

Keep up your extraordinary work and know how much we all appreciate it!  Bravo Zulu!

 As we read in the "News of Members, page 67, reply # 990 - Not Every event that takes place gets posted. These numbers are provided only because somebody heard the event going on and posted it.

 We see that here with the recent event of this site owner, Lt Tom Bendick, awarded a Class A medal. Along with the members of Engine Co 66 being award a "Unit Citation" for their part in a water rescue event in the Bronx on May 13, 2018.

 According to the quote above, on that date in the Bronx there was a collapse of a retaining wall posted by one of the members (Thank you Brad, aka "signal 73"). But no report of a separate incident involving a water rescue of civilians trapped upside down in their car.

 As much as there is a good faith effort by several members to post each incident, there are times when these numbers may not be accurate.

 These numbers, along with the monthly Fire Activity Report on this site, are given merely as a "rough count" of some of the workings of the FDNY.

 Despite an EXCELLENT Effort put forth by the members here, they are NOT official FDNY numbers.
