  • Which company captain rides on

    For firehouses which have engine and truck. Which comoany does the captain ride on at your dept? Interested in what fdny does. Does the captain ride both jumping each pay between engine and ladder? Engine only, ladder only?

    In FDNY each company (ladder and engine) has a Captain who is assigned as the Company Commander. Could be a Captain on both rigs.

      In my former career FD the Captain rode the engine and the LT rode the Truck, before i retired we had LTs on the ambos too.
      Crazy, but that's how it goes

        I think that you are thinking of west coast firehouses- There may be an engine, truck and one or two other pieces in each firehouse with one Captain assigned to each shift. Usually everyone goes on a run (Task Force? Light Force? The Force? Whatever they are called.....Every guy and every rig goes and operates as a unit.)

        Most companies on the east coast are separate and unto themselves and in Philly, FDNY, Boston, Baltimore, etc each company has one Captain (the Company Commander) and 4 or 5 Lieutenants. A company officer is assigned to ride each piece, each shift. They all operate separately unto themselves.

        The only exception to this is some cities have all Captains (Like Camden NJ or Newark NJ...) they do not have Lieuts and the senior Captain is the Company Commander.
