This is a soft cover book measuring 5 ½ inches by 8 ½ inches. It has 88 pages, which are color coded to specify different types of apparatus. The photos are all in color, plus there's an introduction page, abbreviations, and the last two pages have apparatus assignments by unit.

The book has quality page material and as is usual for Fire Apparatus Journal, it is put together magnificently. It portrays the apparatus that was part of the department at the time the book was made up. It includes a photo of each apparatus with appropriate data and the number purchased in the order. In most cases, registration numbers and assignments are given. There is also an explanation on how to interpret the registration numbers.

The apparatus photos in the case of special units does not always have an indication as to the responsibility of that unit. Hard core buffs of the New York City Fire Department would naturally know the duties. The photos again as usual are of top quality by experienced apparatus photographers.

Enjoy the book…it’s another winner!!
