I have a question ref fdny engines and trucks responding to MVAs and calls onto bridges, in particular the Manhattan bridges, such as queensborough , brooklyn man etc bridges.

Lets Man box 8780 is transmitted for an MVA lower lever, queens bound on the queensborough bridge, a first due box for man companies E8/L2, does both the engine Nd truck commit to the bridge or does the engine commit and the truck stay of the bridge awaiting a recce from the first and second arriving engines,  or does the first due truck commit into the bridge with the first due engine to provide cutting gear?

Cheers guys
