    Default New York Fire Patrol

    Please support New York Assembly Bill A 09046 and New York Senate Bill S 06090 Since 1867, by statute, insurance companies have voted an annual assessment to support the New York Fire Patrol. Please sign the petition and pass it along. http://www.gopetition.com/online/31869.html

    The NY Fire Patrol was the last insurance supported Salvage Unit in the United states. "The Patrol responded primarily to fires at commercial structures, however they would respond to high loss residential fires at times. During the fire the Patrol would spread canvas salvage covers, remove water, operate elevators and secure utilities.

    After the fire the Patrol would attempt to prevent further damage to facilities and equipment, with the goal of reducing insurance claims for the damaged goods. Over the years, they grew adept at preventing water damage by immediately pumping out excess water from fire department hoses, at preventing computer and electronics damage by covering and removing equipment as soon as possible, and at preventing damage from the elements by covering broken windows and doors with tarps as soon as possible."

    The Rochester Protectives might disagree that the NY Fire patrols is the last salvage company in the US

    I thought the Fire Patrol was disbanded a few years ago? Is this bill to bring them back? Or have they actually never gone away?

    Default Bring them Back

    These bills would bring them back and be funded. The men have worked so hard to get to this point and now the political folks want to see numbers from constituents. Fingers are crossed that the little people might actually win. My fingers are crossed.

    Go to their new site and sign up for the e-mail updates. If and when that stage happens, you'll know. They're incorporated, but still a long way off from that.

    Thanks TL Mickey. Do you know what they still need to accomplish so they can get back together again?
