    There has always been one volunteer FD in Brooklyn and it still operates.

    Anyone remember Artie DeMello?

    Also they have to slow down or even stop and red lights now so of course its gonna slow them down and the fact that in new york people dont pull over when they see lights or hear sirens its preaty sad
