Squad 23 is the replacement for Engine 3. Squad 24 will be the replacement for Engine 4 shortly. Both squads are capable for Rescue extrication.The numbering is for the dual dispatch with Hackenaack forthcoming so that is why the 2 prefix. Therebis no extra manpower as some would like to believe. Teaneck and Hackenaack are seeing explosive apartment growth.Wait, about a year or less ago TFD sold off a Newer truck - Rescue, because they could not man it at times,
in the past when they had a spare engine - one that was being replace by a new one it would take the next number after Eng 4 , like the spare would be eng 5 or 6 if it ever had o be placed into service.
this Squad 23 number assign - to me- doesn't make sense a Squad 1 yes or eng 6 , how is it maned - from assigned manpower Rescue 1, which was not Rescue 11 or 21 41?
The joint dispatch with Hackensack along with Englewood has been discussed years ago.... S23 then makes sense IMHO
what say you
Englewood is going nowhere. They are staying in house at the PD Comm Center....sharing resources, automatic response without regard of municipal boundaries? in Bergen County?
is hackensack keeping the 300's or short it just to 30"s
If englewood ever makes up thier mind might they be numbered in the ten's (10,11..)
