I was working the 12 to 8am shift at Bronx fire communications (Dispatcher # 182). I remember the person who activated the ERS box 2521
saying there is a fire and people were jumping out of windows. At almost the same time every phone was ringing and all reporting
the same. In those days Rescuse 3 was quartered in Manhattan at Eng93 and Lad45. Few seconds after the box was transmitted Bronx Dispatchers special called Rescue 3. It was a very long night. Something I will never forget.
