“When I pulled up, there was a woman standing in the street, waving her arms and screaming in distress, ‘There are people in the house! There’s a baby inside!’ My own children are 3 and 5 years old, and both being a father and with the training we’ve received, my instinct was to run inside even though the fire company wasn’t on scene yet. I notified my dispatcher at EMS and headed to the front door.” – FDNY Lieutenant Craig Roeder, a Paramedic at Station 45 in Queens and seen...

The vehicles featured in today’s ‪#‎FDNYfleet‬ post are an Emergency Crew Vehicle, a Tactical Support Unit and a Fuel Truck. The Emergency Crew Vehicles respond to firehouses and EMS stations, as well as fire scenes, to repair Department vehicles in the field. They carry a large inventory of parts and equipment to utilize when making repairs. The FDNY’s Tactical Support Unit contains many large storage compartments, which hold specialized tools and equipment not usually carried by other fire units, such as: chainsaws for underwater use, powerful electric generators, an inflatable boat and a telescoping light tower. The Fuel Truck is designed to deliver diesel fuel in the event of an emergency, such as a natural disaster.

Despite a valiant comeback performance in the third period, the NYPD earned bragging rights this year, winning the game with a final score of 6-5. See more photos from the game at [Flickr]
