11/25/08 89 W - + 12 - 8 Thawing Unit in Operation

Found on another site, here's a YouTube video of an FDNY thawing unit operating after a three-alarm fire in Hackensack, NJ. Always wondered what they looked like in operation. FDNY Fire Zone calls it a "mobile utility van with a portable steam-generating boiler; it's super-heated steam melts the ice off the hoses, ladders and tower ladders." This particular unit is operated by Engine 76. Michael Martinelli has pics of past and present units at that hosue on his excellent FDNY apparatus site.

what a great site, and the patches from each of the boroughs – WOW!!!
