Winfield is a very small neighborhood name found in Queens County, New York City. The "Long Island" designation for Queens addresses was used well into the 20th Century. A Volunteer Engine Co. 2 was in the area from 1862 to 1913, with their location noted as Thomson and Fisk Avenues, which were renamed to the present day Queens Blvd & 69th Street. Engine 287-2 FDNY was organized in 1913, probably in the same volunteer house. This company was re-designated Engine 292 in 1918 and is currently in their nearby firehouse constructed in 1914 at Queens Blvd and 65th Place.
I want to ask (and don't want to because I'm afraid of the answer) about the Mack CF. Are any still in FDNY service? I did some quick research tonight and came up with a few that might be around-foam units where I didn't find any pictures of new Freightliners with the same designation.
At least two CFs went to the airliner off the runway in March 2015 (Foam 96 & Foam 206), but photos and videos have gone pretty quiet since then.
Do any of these companies still have one? Or any others in FDNY? I may have waited too long and missed them :'(
Foam 206, Foam 95, Foam 294
Thanks in advance!
