Question FDNY Engines

This may have been posted before, excuse me if it has. I don't know to much about the FDNY or how they operate. Recently Ive been more interested in them and the mass amounts of info that goes along. My question is..on their engines, they have that big metal box on the top of the cab. What exactly is that box? Is it extra storage or what?

Haz Mat Tech Units (Hazmat Engines and Squad Companies) use the box for the storage of their Lion Hazmat Suits and related equipment. I would assume decon engines would also use it for Hazmat equipment. I am unsure what regular engine companies are carrying up there, if anything, at the moment.

Cackis is correct on the use of those boxes. They are only equipped on hazmat companies and squad companies, regular engine companies will not have them.

According to this post at nycfire.net Seagrave Marauder II Metal Roof boxes?, each Company can decide what they put up there.

You can have pretty much anything in them. All new engines will have them.
