    About 18 Deputy Asst Comm's (Dep Asst Chiefs) 4 as Area Commanders, the remainder as various Department heads or seconded to UK Government.

    6 Asst Comm's (Asst Chief of Depts) These are heads of directorates such as Training, Fire Safety, Policy etc

    1 Deputy Comm (No FDNY Equivalent) Head of Operations and No 2of LFB

    1 Commissioner* (Chief of Dept)

    Many of my FDNY colleagues who are (or were as most have retired) in the Chief ranks have always been amazed at how many of us there are in LFB which is probably only around 65% the size of FDNY

    Wow. Revitalization of a 7+ year thread. Someone must have been ultra-bored.

    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.

    No, just trying to show that there is really a search feature, and that it does indeed work.



    But, it is surprising what you can find at 0300, while sitting watch.
