I would like to add, "Beefman" from da Bronx to the list. I believe formerly Disp 330.baileyjeff said:Does anyone know what ever happened to Warren Fuchs or George Munch after they retired?
Here is just a very small sample at the start of one of those very busy Fourth of July nights. There are numerous other audios as well.jerseymike said:I was totally amazed at how those dispatchers handled the July 4th runs/fires and kept such cool composures. A long and healthy retirement to all of you...
One Bklyn. dispatcher's name I recall from that time, Morris Heitowit. He also owned a print shop that I think was on 44th street right of McDonald Avenue. He printed all the FD manuals for guys to use for studying for promotion Etc.1261Truckie said:I don't remember names (except for Brendan O'Conner), but the dispatchers from the Brooklyn C.O. in the late 60's and early 70's were the best. Without computers to "assist" them, they kept a rein over what could have been chaos.
Thanks John. More names that ring a bell for me (and Others) as well.johnd248 said:I still have Morris Heitowit's book to this day. Since I rode with E 248 and B 41, I got to spend a lot of time at the Bklyn CO: Bob Lepage, George Slattery, Russ Ramsey, Waaaaaaren Fuchs, George Munch, Brendan O'Conner, Mike Vitucci, Newt Tanner, Steve Ternlund (who went OTJ and worked at E 248 as a LT and retired out of B 41), Steve Klein, and Dan Buckley (who preceded me at E 248). There are many, many others, but it was a long time ago.
Thank you Brad for posting that photo with Herb Eysser.Herbie Eyser
