    New Rochelle (Westchester) NY- 2nd Alarm 07-14-21

    They go to the house and cover that district, physical relocation. It wouldn't make much sense to have them respond from their own quarters on calls, its a far distance.

    Brooklyn FDNY/MVA Box 2688*Late*

    One of the Batt Chiefs I drove when I was a back up Aide always said "Its better to have them on the way and not need them then to need them and not have them on the way". He would always go for the extra 1 and 1 or the extra alarm because of that.

    Volunteer fire house in the city.

    City Island did have a quint a long while back prior to 53 Truck going back there. It might have been an old Mack that the shops put together. A picture of it sitting outside their quarters has been on this site a few times.

    What is the normal assignment for a person hit by or pinned under a train or a subway train?
