    Thumbs up

    Wow, he's good! I didn't understand everything, but definitely grasped enough of it to get the main gist.

    Can someone please remind me what "fire still doubtful" means. Does it mean there's a possibility fire conditions still exist (extension, hot spots etc.)? I thought it meant the fire wasn't out yet, but on the last recording someone said the fire on the 38th floor was knocked down but then he said the fire was still doubtful.

    And please save me the trouble of digging up that old 10-code thread ... what's a 10-77? There was another one I heard that I don't know, but I can't remember what it was ... I wanna say 10-40?

    Thanks! Added to my favs for next time.

    I think it must have been a 10-44 I was referring to in my previous post.

    Is he saying "box" as in "Box to Battalion 27"?

    Around here we say who we want to talk to, then our own: "Firecom, Engine 51" "Go ahead, Engine 51"

    Of course, I have to strain pretty good with some of that accent.

    Rescue 3 and Sq 61 each carry the high rise window blankets? Who carries the high rise nozzles used for floor below applications?

    I think I just answered my own question, but I'll await verification...

    That is some awesome audio. That's a good, experienced dispatcher. If I had been able to spend my last 3 years as a dispatcher as just a fire radio operator as opposed to that in addition to call-taking and law enforcement, it would have been a lot more enjoyable. Fortunately I get to start enjoying doing the FF/EMT thing f/t now. I would immagine that being a fire radio operator in a large city would be stressful in it's own right, but it sure would be a blast!
    That would be a great piece of audio to use as training tool, especially for new fire dispatchers teaching them to be able to multitask and pay attn to details. Of course it is a little more difficult considering the recordings have edited out the empty air, but still excellent none the less

    [QUOTE=MG3610;1079847]Whats the duty assigned to the nozzle engine on the 10-77?

    QUOTE]
    That is the unit that is bringing the highrise nozzle. You are correct
    Engine 66 was assigned. There are a few of these nozzles throughout the city. Not everyone has one.

    Also 10-75 is normally given for a structure fire (ie. Private Dwelling, Multi Dwelling, or taxpayer)
    10-77 is given for an occupied hi-rise. It basically gives the chief extra engines, trucks, and other resources.

    Well done. He was a busy guy.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Fire "Doubtful" or "Doubtful will hold" means the chief may still need to call additional companies to the job. "Probably will hold" means the chief will not likely need to call additional companies to the job.

    At most jobs the progress would be Doubtful, Probably will hold and then under control.

    I do think we are the only ones with it in the country. Its looks like the old Navy Nozzle with applicator. Its feed with a 2.5" and is used on the floor below and water is applied from the outside window.....used only if the Engine Companies can't make the apartment due to blow torch conditions.
