    Yeah, that was good insight, good PR tool.

    I'd watch more if they made them.

    Nice to see the FDNY respond to a drunk guy in the subway, I thought they just did fire.
    At least they have to suffer like us...

    Buff time....
    I saw a fog nozzle...so do all FDNY co.'s carry them?
    It looked as though one of the rigs had a raised roof cab, is it a newer rig or just some special order? I haven't seen raised cabs on FDNY rigs with exception of the ferrara that was sent there after 9-11.

    Most companies carry a fog nozzle on the trash line for rubbish fires and car fires.

    The raised roof cabs are the new rigs.

    NYC,
    Thanks for a simple straightforward answer. Not too often we get that on the forums.

    How are the companies liking the new cab design? Although I didn't know they were raised roofs, I was under the impression that they now have the "openn" cab design with no engine"dog house" through the back. If this is true then it would be a first for FDNY???

    i dont know if the open cab is a first but from what i have seen and heard the back step is very nice. Lots of space and even a computer screen to read the ticket. I have heard complaints though that the front is very cramped for the boss and the driver.

    the doghouse has been moved up front, its my understanding that it had to do with the new engine requirements. so the back is wide open. Im not sure if this is a first or not, but Im guessing it is.
