    Default Extrication in NYC

    In NYC, whoperforms extrication. I know in boston the ladders and 2 rescues do, but in new york they have squads too. And the NYPD has those REP deals and big heavy rescues. Who's in charge?

    Apparently everyone and no one. Very good question.

    In the FDNY, ladder companies, squad companies, and rescue companies perform extrications. Ladder companies are the initial first due units, with a rescue company assigned to all serious mva's. Squads perform extrication as the acting ladder company in their coverage area.

    NYPD Emergency Service Units (ESU) also respond to rescue extrication calls, so many extrications are a combined FDNY/NYPD effort

    It is really wierd the first time you see a police truck pull up to an MVA and a bunch of cops jump out with hurst tools. It really leaves you scratching your head if you aren't aware of the way NYC does things.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Even knowing that ESU does extrications, it's still weird seeing it for the 1st time...
    The comments made by me are my opinions only, not of the Fire and EMS services I am affiliated with.

    FAST is usually another version of RIT..............there are 7 (I think) Volly companies left in NYC. How do they work ............as far as I know they work like we all do. If you are asking about how they interact with the FDNY.............not to sure. Let me see what I can dredge up.
