Hey! Chicago guys! Read this!
Hey lads, some mutual aid please.....
I collect old company watch journals (among other things....) and have just acquired the journal of Engine Co. 106 running from Jan 1, 1960 to Jan 1, 1961.
Can anyone tell me about 106? Locations? What the rig was back then? Any and all interesting facts that would lend some color to the book.
And a question.....I was once told that in Chicago, "Strike out the box" means "The fire is out." Is this true? Because in Philly, the same sentence is exactly the opposite- Strike out the box! translates into "OH CRAP, GIMME HELP!!!! STRIKE OUT THE BOX!!!!"
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out!"Loyalty Above all Else. Except Honor."

Strike Out The Box
It means that no other equipment will be needed to complete the assignment.

BIG difference in striking out the box and striking the box! Striking out means under control, striking da box means assigned the closest box to da call. We need assistance.
