Thanks Brad for providing that list. I'm sure that many members outside the area have no idea that some FDNY companies do NOT relocate. As well as some that only relocate during certain times.

In each case there are reasons that the leadership within the department feels it is more important to have them remain in their own quarters when possible.

This is an example of how EVERYTHING is so well thought out and organized. The FDNY leadership feels this is what is best for the FDNY and the millions of citizens they protect.

SI, e159 doesn?t relocate (none of the satellites do). They also don?t have 4th due boxes.( all satellites)
151/76 don?t relocate and our must cover if either will be operating for greater than 30 minuets.

Back in the 50's  249 & 113 did not relocate and were must fill.The reason for this was they were first due at Box 1096 which was the Box associated with Kings County Hospital that also had R2 on the Box and a Division Chief.

  That could also be the reason why L113 got former L24's 1959 Mack/Maxim/Magirus 100ft. tiller in 1961. ;)

Among the many great things about this site is that everyone learns from someone else. The fellowship here is of the highest caliber.

Communications
Q: Who/what is Car [insert number]?  How do they respond?
A: The Car assignments are the designations for special personnel, either administrative or command, who are associated mainly with FD HQ.  For example, Car 36B is for the Department Chaplain.  There are certain responses, such as a third alarm or 10-60 transmission, that require the response of certain cars.  For example, multiple alarms requires the response of the on-duty staff chief (a chief at rank DAC or above).  There is a list of car assignments at: http://www.firebellclub.org/cars.html
Some Car assignments and who they are (as of November 2009):
Car 1 (Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro)
Car 1A (Executive Assistant to the Commissioner)
Car 2 (1st Deputy Commissioner Daniel Shacknai)
Car 3 (Chief of Department Edward Kilduff)
Car 4 (Chief of Fire Operations James Esposito)
Car 4A (AC James Manahan, Assistant Chief of Operations)
Car 4C (AC Ronald Spadafora, Chief of Logistics)
Car 4D (AC Joseph Pfeifer, Assistant Chief of Operations - Counterterrorism/Preparedness)
Car 4G (AC Edward Baggott, Assistant Chief of Operations - Administration)
Car 4H (DAC James Daly Jr, Deputy Assistant Chief of Operations - Planning & Strategy)
Car 5 (Chief of EMS Operations John Peruggia)
Car 6 (AC John Sudnik, Manhattan Borough Commander)
Car 7 (DAC James Leonard, Brooklyn Borough Commander)
Car 8 (DAC Michael Marrone, Staten Island Borough Commander)
Car 9 (DAC Robert Maynes, Queens Borough Commander)
Car 10 (DAC Kevin Butler, Bronx Borough Commander)
Car 11 (AC William Seelig, Chief of Special Operations Command)
Car 11A (BC Stephen J. Geraghty, Chief of Rescue Operations)
Car 11B (DC Nicholas Delre, Chief of HazMat Operations)
Car 11C (BC James Dalton, Chief of Marine Operations)
Car 12 (AC Stephen Raynis, Chief of Safety and Inspectional Services)
Car 13 (AC Thomas Jensen, Chief of Fire Prevention)
Car 13A (AC Richard Tobin, Assistant Chief of Fire Prevention)
Car 13B (DAC Joseph Woznica, DAC of Fire Prevention)
Car 14 (Chief Fire Marshal Robert Byrnes)
Car 15 (AC Thomas Galvin, Chief of Training)
Car 15A (DAC James Mooney, Chief of Fire Academy)
Car 16 (AC Robert Boyce Jr., Chief of Communications)
Car 17 (BC Michael Gala Jr., Chief of  Personnel)

Does anyone happen to have a link/list to the car designations/assignments?  Would be very helpful to reference when hearing the cars respond over the scanner on their role.  So, just looking for their designations mainly, names are nice but not required.  Seems like the firebellclub link is no longer accessible.
