Hi Dan, it’s too bad you didn’t have more time on the job, because you would have made a great officer. You have a wealth of knowledge and a way to project it, the way you do it on this site.
WOW, TK, what can I say? I'm honored that you think so. You made my day Brother, thank you! I was very blessed to have worked with some very outstanding bosses like yourself who inspired many of us young guns, especially me. I'd have to say, you and I had an incredible experience, during a magical time in a crazy joint. Thanks TK!Hi Dan, it’s too bad you didn’t have more time on the job, because you would have made a great officer.

That's most likely copied from our books on elevator ops. The FDNY uses the 7th floor as the cut off and not more than six members per car. But we also stop at different intervals to make sure the elevator car is working properly and for the officer to observe conditions looking upward through the crack of the elevator car. The first action is to place the elevator car into fireman service. After that, the next step is to select floor and hit cancel. The elevator should react to the selection, if not the car is placed OOS. There is much more, this is just a tip of the 30 page manual.What is the rule for FDNY regarding using the elevators in high-rise's? Where I live in the Chicago area if it's fifth floor or bellow your going up the stairs, 5th floor or above they take the elevator two floors bellow the fire floor. Thanks.
