    4/6/21 Queens 8th Alarm Box 7864

    I'm still trying to figure out who goes to the trouble of making a trench cut - and DOESN'T PULL IT?? And they wonder why it jumped the trench? That's because when you don't pull it, there IS NO trench! We used to pull the ceilings below the trench and have a charged line to protect the...

    1-8-21...QNS SEVENTH ALARM 4464

    Was there any other jobs concurrently? Seems strange that E275 and E326 were assigned on the 2-2 before E299 and E320??...and E315 on the 4th, typically would be 8th or 9th engine on the box?

    12/22/20 Queens 2nd Alarm Box 9237

    If it's illegal to transport propane in NYC, how then do all the Home Depot big box stores sell and exchange 20 lb. cylinders? I know of 1 in College Point and 1 in Flushing have been doing it for years. Chapter 38 of the NYC Fire Codes will come into play. Also, I wonder how many people have...

    Just an FYI: 10-75 is a "request" for a full first alarm assignment including special units. ALL HANDS is a notification signal that all first alarm units are operating. Don't confuse the two.

    9/17/20 Queens 10-75 Box 5013

    Advanced fire on arrival, fire out 2 windows. You don't know by looking if there may be front and rear apartments until you count mailboxes in the lobby. First line is always what the officer calls for. In this case, it's a short stretch, even for a four-man engine. You can't go wrong in...
