    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.

    I think that there is alot of interest in this post because most fire departments are loyal to one brand or one builder of fire apparatus, and they would like to see the FDNY run there engines over the other guys ?

    Understood. But this is 7 pages over a rumor of what someone might end up with.

    I guess I am just happy to like or dislike whatever they or anyone else actually ends up with.

    This is not a "development". It will be an apparatus purchase, nothing more.

    Any fire departments who jump on the band wagon and go out and purchase a FDNY look-alike apparatus are just fooling them selfs, only the FDNY gets the reel New York speced truck, it may have a Seagrave, Ferrara, or KME, grill and name plate but it will never be built to the same specs !

    For those other FD's who have purchased KME, where they fit in around this bid is quite a development!

    What I am trying to say is that many departments will go out and purchase a certain make fire apparatus just because the F.D.N.Y. has awarded a bid , and runs that model engine !

    Oh contrare. IF you can get your hands on a FDNY Spec,you TOO may have a FDNY Engine. For a significant increase in price.The Mgf's(Most)will build to any spec as long as it's legal.

    and those departments should be embarrassed....they obviously know little about FDNY and the trucks they get.
    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

    I have seen some departments go as far as trying to match the lettering, so there rigs will look like a F.D.N.Y apparatus. Who am I to judge anyone !!

    Yep...low bid. I know many of the AFD guys...and they HATE the new engines, they also don't care for their new Pierce platforms either.

    NEGATIVE. Little Birdy shook the Magic 8-Ball this afternoon. Magic 8-Ball said "The bids have all been validated (gone over by the bean counters and tech guys and verified as legitimate) however NO BIDS, I REPEAT NO BIDS HAVE BEEN AWARDED AS OF THIS TIME.

    Little Birdy sent me an email about an hour ago. He said he was minding his own business, eating his lunch when all of a sudden the Magic 8-Ball fell off the shelf onto the floor and erupted into a ball of fire, screaming "THE CONTRACT WAS AWARDED TO KME THIS MORNING." and then Magic 8-Ball melted into a puddle of goo, and passed into the next world.
