I noticed Squad 1 in the photos at this job. Did they respond on the 10-66 or in relief? I woul think Squad 288 would have been closer.

Field Comm responds on the Second Alarm

Then on the third alarm you have:

E262 w/ IMT Unit
E233 w/ Mobile Command 1

Could someone explain how  these units are used?    Is a BC assigned to each?
