    I have been there a couple of different times and ridden with multiple companies each time as well as riding in several other cities around the country.

    Compared to what I have seen, slow getting out of the house.

    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.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    It must be due to the type of response. Turnout is relative to the type of incident and how the unit is assigned (1st due, 2nd due, etc). We also have a modified response policy for most emergencies that has only the first engine and truck responding in emergency mode with the balance of the assignment responding according to all traffic laws.
    I've worked in many NYC firehouses and have rarely if ever seen a slow turnout for a reported fire. What do you consider slow? 15 seconds? 30 seconds? A minute? I know it would be just about physically impossible to get out quicker than my current firehouse.

    We also have bigger buildings, more people, heavier traffic, way more BS, and an annual workload that dwarfs everything you and all your friends put together have. Its not a track meet. Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.

    Do you live in NYC?


    See this link http://www.nyc.gov/html/fdny/html/co...dex.shtml#fire



    Also go to the hiring section in these forums for several topics on FDNY employment.

    In the current climate your poor spelling abilities will NOT count against you.
