The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

FDNY Mobile Training Vehicle 1
Here is a 2010 Sterling Acterra (box truck) set up as a mobile training facility to teach FDNY members how to negotiate confined spaces, small roof hatches and how to use a personal safety rope to bail out of a window. Note the mock-up small window opening and the rubber matting on the sidewalk (inside the safety cones). There was an incident in 2005 where several FF died when they jumped from a fifth story window to escape being burned (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sunday_(2005). (8219a, 8220a)

This is outside the quarters of Engine 284 / Tower Ladder 149 in Brooklyn on Oct 28, 2017.
