    My understanding is ESU is trained in high angle rope rescue. As with the window washer incident recently would ESU assist FDNY, vis-versa or not at all in a job like that? I am aware of the delegation of authority after 9-11, just wondering

Was listening to a multiple alarm in the Bronx last week and the feed on the "all borough" feed was better than the one dedicated to the Bronx.  I get the whole thing about the narrow banding, power reduction etc. ...
