    Cool Of Course....

    I honestly doubt that there is a single fire station in the entire US that does not respond to car wrecks. Yes FDNY has them, by the bucketfull. some of the more spectacular ones make the Firehouse.com Home page from time to time. Stay Safe....

    Being a transposed New Yorker myself, the reason probably is because in most of the city you go like 10 MPH if even that so like 90% of all the MVAs are fenderbenders, though they get their share of bad accidents.

    Though if I'm not mistaken NYPD ESU carries the Jaws on their trucks? Maybe one of the FDNY guys can clarify that?

    The FDNY guys can correct em if I'm wrong (like they need an invitation), but aren't most MVA extrications handled by NYPD ESU?

    Hello,

    Although I'm not a FDNY member...........

    Rescue,truck and I believe the squads all carry the tool. And they go to there fare share of mva's. If you listen for any length of time on there freq's you'll hear them go.

    MVAs are a first come first serving basis. MVAs go out to FD EMS and PD at the same time. For the most part, the first jaws at work will be supplemented by later arriving units. It's not a juristictional matter, it's a matter of service to the public...remember.

    MVAs are an everyday matter, you know, bread and butter.

    The traffic mess in Manhatten is only 1/5th of the city. You still got outer Boro's , with thousands of streets and aves, and parkway's that provide plenty of "pin jobs".
