    Default Salvage Companies

    I mean a dedicated Company with the tarps, dewatering equipment, Smoke ejectors and such still in Service. Ever since the New York Fire Patrol went away I don't know of any Dedicated Salvage Companies anymore.

    Anybody know of one still in service and responding?

    Yep we have one here in Rochester. The Protectives. They come to fires for lighting,tarps,their large fans changing our bottles and such. They are also called for bigger water problems.

    Back in the day Rochester had several FDs who all competed for fires ( think gangs of NY) .

    The RFD and the single protective co. Are the two left standing.
