    according the the article, the second collapse unit is going to be stored with Ladder 132. Rescue 2 makes more sense to me, but i'm only going with what i have read.

    according to the numbers provided by Vinnie, the Collapse unit responded to an average of 1 collapse every other day, and has a working collapse on average every 4 days. is it really worth it to spend all the money on a temporary unit when they only go to work every 4 days to rescue someone?

    oh and for the record, you Staten Island is part of New York. We consider that land fill to be a shining example of New York City. and the Statue of Liberty is also in New Jersey, in case you were confused about it

    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    NO NO NO NO NO!....You can keep Staten Island! It smells more like NJ. And is the bright and gleaming example of Newark, Jersey City, and AC.

    You got us on the Statue though...I think the border goes right through the middle.....?

    I appreciate the case law, as was stated, its always good to have hard facts in front of you. The facts I was poorly trying to articulate is that #1- I was always told lights on, sirens on- we may not all follow this but it is opening the door to a law suit if the siren isnt even installed- I may have been instructed wrong, so I forgive me if I am wrong. #2- This unit was put in place because the city presumably saw a need, meaning it will have more than one or two responses. If I were driving a large vehicle to the scene of an emergency, large being as I stated 10-15 tons, I would want as much warning to get people out of my way, and as much protection from liability- they always say, CYA. These units are not a waste- the city always has a use for excess vehicles, they have always found a use for old vehicles, from the old mack engines being converted to decon units, etc.

    I understand no one wants the Jets, Knicks, Rangers, etc., but the Giants? Come on boys, we finally got a QB!!!

    Default Spirit Of Oklahoma

    What are they doing with the spirit of oklahoma? Have not seen it assigned to any unit and looks like it would be a much better solution to the problem. But this is comming from the outside. Maybe some FDNY guys could provide some insight.
