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 - Rescue 1 (rear view)
Some of the options on the current Rescue 1 include a 25,000 lb. Hydraulic Rear Winch, 12,000 lb. Ransey Front Winch, Vanair Air Tool Compressor, rescue zodiac, and seating for four (4) firefighters in the rear cabin -- however I've never seen a Rescue 1 member sit whilst responding to an alarm. Rescue-1 operates on all working fires in the borough of Manhattan, south of Harlem.
