Thank You Ray.

I would also add:
Brooklyn:
5/16/22 - 2nd Alarm - Box 4058, which I did NOT include in the May, 2022 Fire Activity report.

I did NOT include it because it was NOT a fire, but actually a power outage with numerous people stuck in elevators at Starrett City.

Thanks Ray. Used to be "Odd Jobs" feature stories in old WNYFs.

Summary:

1. Gas leaks 4
2. Marine/water 4
3. Elevators 2
4. Vehicle accidents 2
4. Bomb scare 1
6. Train 1
7. Collapse 1
8. Misc 2

Boro:

1. Manhattan 6
2. Brooklyn 5
3. Queens 2
4. Bronx 3
5. SI 1

Notes

- FDNY responds to many gas leaks, vehicle accidents, subway/train emergencies, elevator incidents, manholes, leaks and marine incidents that do not get 10-75 or all-hands signals. This represents only a small number of incidents which required greater assets.
- There also was a marine unit accident w/fatality 6/18.


Thanks again, Ray. Your work reminds us that it is not all fires and medical calls and that every run can be a different challenge.

These are only the ones that have been posted on this site, with a few added from the FDNY Facebook page. I'm sure there are hundreds more that never get reported.

Thanks for the kind words, Willy . . . but it's not that much of a trick. All I do is copy the posts that OTHER PEOPLE have made (aside from the occasional FDNY Facebook post, which I also copy) and paste them into a Word document, which I then copy and paste here at the end of the month. It's those OTHER PEOPLE who deserve the credit. They are the ones who find and post the information.

Thanks Ray. Excellent job!

I think there are many marine incidents, subway emergencies, lockouts, serious MVAs, power failures, fumes, odors, elevator incidents, manhole fires, water leaks etc. which never make the incidents reported in the media or on our site because there are so many and become routine "odd jobs", as they used to be called. Most of these incidents frequently get full responses and special units. Bklyn Box 3586 is a good example of a box that probably had 2 engines, 2 trucks, a rescue, 2 chiefs, EMTs or Medics and maybe a fireboat for reported people in the water with no FDNY operations required - and boxes like that happen a lot.
