- Another job with JM at the helm.




- More Booch, reports of kids trapped to Val-tallion 20.




- I didn't really think 3+2 and the Battalion was the definition of a 5-7 SIG, but hey, what do I know.




- JN finally caught some work.

- More of JN, caught another job.

- More of the same.

- Another instant 10-75 for 244.

- Same box, D7 reports 3 10-45s.

- Load up the box, sounds like a job. Gone are these days, thanks to UCT.

- Another job from dispatcher too faw faw.




Even bosses catch work sometimes. Here are various supervisors whoring it up on the radio.

- BK working a job.

- Naturally, JR works a job in Riverdale.

- As luck would have it, we do have a 10-7.

- I remember when this guy was 346. Now he's a boro chief somewheres.

- Radio whoring isn't limited to tour supervisors, here is number 3.




- DL, number 186 getting a 2nd dumped within minutes of the 10-84.




- RF, number 154 gets a yelling 10-75 from L052.




- Dispatcher 136, Mr. Red Light himself, barking at E81/L46 as they get a job. Bronx to all units on crap jobs nearby, hurry up and hit the 10-8 button!




- Something brewing in Tracey Towers, quite possibly the nastiest hi-rise in the X besides Richman Plaza.


- More of Tracey Towers, with lots of other jobs going on.


- Crap. After the Under Control, fire blowing out the floor above. Transmit another 10-77, k.




- JF, number 244 working a 2nd alarm on arrival up in the 15th, with kind of an excited aide on the radio.




- MF, number 720, calmly working a decent job up in the 15BN.




- 720 on Radio Out going to work down on 135 near Willis.




- MW got a 2nd down on Bruckner. Sounds like he just woke up.




- Caught a 2nd going to a 3rd on Longwood in late July '09, Dispatcher 720 calmly working again. This is a good example of communications chaos held together by seasoned dispatchers. Between screaming, slow aides using lousy portable radios, units delayed by traffic, a blinding fire scene, units magically going 10-8 at the transmission of a greater alarm...this job went well. Inputting a greater alarm by a dispatcher into the SEP doesn't account for units going 10-8 "around the corner"...one has to decide quickly whether they're close enough, and then manually assign them and turn around the units Starfire suggested in their absence. Great job by all who worked that night, I hear Darrin and Bill H. in the background.


- More of Mr. Calm, Dispatcher 720 dealing with barely readable progress reports, delayed units, magically 10-8 units that weren't assigned, and other nonsense. Good job by all.




- 10-75 and All-Hands by Dispatcher 156, on E 167 near Clay Av. Loaded up the box despite UCT crap. Nice job.

- Dispatcher 138 was Bill Treanor, last I heard...who's the new guy??




- Alright, I know this doesn't belong with Bronx sound clips, but this clip from Yonkers shows the craziness that ensued after a meteor exploded over southern Westchester on 3/9/09. Heard it myself. No, I'm not on crack, it really was a meteor - http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Loud-Boom-Might-Have-Been-Meteor.html
