St. George Hotel Fire Report
1995

Water Supply

The Maxi-Water System is dispatched on second alarms in this part of Brooklyn. The entire Maxi-Water System consists of six engine companies with 2000 gpm pumps, each of which has a hose wagon loaded with large diameter hose and appliances. Engine 207 is the primary Maxi-Water company and the officer of E-207 acts as the Water Resource Officer at major incidents. The five Satellite Units are assigned to other areas of the city. The normal response of the Maxi-Water System included Engine 207 as the Maxi-Water Unit and two of the Satellite Units. The 2000 gpm pumpers are directed to hydrants that can provide a strong water supply and deliver water through the large diameter hose to manifolds close to the fire.

Due to the location of the fire, E-207 was one of the engines on the initial response and was assigned early in the fire incident.

The Water Department was asked to open the grids to assure maximum water availability in the area. Manifolds were positioned on Clark Street, Pineapple Street and Hicks Street to supply both hand lines and heavy streams.

Other Specialized Units

One of the two Safety Operating Battalion Chiefs responds automatically on second alarms. He is responsible to survey the scene for safety practices and monitor radio traffic for emergency calls. SB-2 was assigned to this incident.

The extra ladder company that is dispatched on an “all hands” fire is assigned as the Firefighter Assist and Search Team (FAST). The FAST reports to provide immediate assistance in the event that a company gets in trouble or cannot account for a firefighter. Due to the magnitude of this incident, several ladder companies were assigned as FAST companies for different areas.
