    It would definitely seem so, someone at E40 must also love a little tradition. That said the white doesn't stand out great, interested to see if another company tries black out.

    E88 historically hasn't had a grill number, I imagine they requested to keep with tradition. Also I see that E40 has a white grill number.

    Tower Ladder 35

    Certainly a trade off, maneuverability versus tactical ability. That said getting to a job faster could reduce the need for defensive operations. But, realistically I doubt there will be any change in the future.

    Tower Ladder 35

    I agree, the TDAs have been making a national come back with many cities i.e. Philadelphia, Baltimore and DC primarily using them. Of course the cost and size requirements in fire houses would be the main drawbacks.

    I think in the start SOC had a unit for it, but I think it has been transferred now.

    Railroad Police

    I've had dealings with Port Authority Police (PATH), MTA Police (Metro North), NJT Police (Newark Penn Station), Amtrak Police (NY Penn Station) and NYPD Transit (NYC Subways) through my time as an EMT with FDNY and University Hospital (Newark, NJ). I've had an interaction with all these...

    It appears from an observer's stand point that the bottom one is scene lighting, the middle one is the actual emergency lighting and then the top looks to be a Opticom, but I'm not really into lights so I could be off the mark.

    New Rescues in Production

    So I believe that Ferrara now only makes aluminium chassis most likely to streamline their supply chain in a cost saving measure. REV mostly likely now has KME make the Ultra due to them having other steel products on the market, again just merging supply chains. Which is a long winded way to...

    FDNY has a similar policy although occasionally details of an incident get lost (or are never given) between the PD call taker, EMS dispatcher and the MDT sometimes resulting in finding ourselves in unsafe scenes. That said such precautions are a luxury compared to my time in Newark were PD was...

    FLAG DAY 2020...JUNE 14.

    So my unit has for years had an American flag mounted to the back of the bus, bought by our senior man a proud immigrant, now US citizen from Poland. On flag day whilst sitting 89 on our street corner, it was unfortunately cut off with a knife, never to be seen again.
