Anyone know why SQ08 only responds up to 2nd due and not 3rd like other squads? Is it due to remote location on island?

Not sure but i would think maybe due to a large Response area having 3rd Due Boxes would take them out of the picture more often as a SQ & going back to SQ*1 responding to SI ?

154 needs to return to Staten Island!
They can use E154 in the New Springfield area. Even tho it’s a straight shot for E167…. Should open TL88 too with E168 and for sure the BC24 is needed with E168 or either with SQ8… sadly I don’t think E168 has room since EMS is there I have heard kitchen very small

Idea is to prevent SQ01 from constantly traveling the Verrazano... those EzPass bills were getting quite expensive lol

All kidding aside it is to keep the SOC units more readily available to go on the -75 or greater. Not to mention the size of response zones for SI when you are going beyond second due is basically like half the borough.

Is there even talk of adding units to SI.

You heard incorrectly on the kitchen size @ 168 skyler. It has some roominess to it.

Does the responding as an engine in 1st 2nd 3rd due areas apply to technical rescue responses also? Or do they respond as a squad with their second piece and another engine is assigned?

If it's a SOC job, they go as a SOC company
