These guys don't get the recognition they deserve. All during the Queens blackout 2 years ago, we were vilifying Con Edison, but not making a distinction between their inept management and the guys down the hole.

It's these guys who keep the lights on in this city!

Tony, it is common practice for multiple units to respond to single emergencies.

Tony, so what you're saying is if that were YOU in that situation, you'd be ok with only a few firemen at the scene? Come on people...stop being so damn selfish!

If that was you, or your son, or brother in that manhole would you not want everyone there to help get you out? so why dont you BE REAL., A mother lost a son today and so did a father. I work in those holes every day and i am damn proud of my company and the FDNY and NYPD to know that they are there if i need them.
