Eng 209 Hurricane Sandy
  ENGINE 209 was returning from an alarm during Sandy when debris broke an airline in the undercarriage and disabled it. The crew had to abandon the rig and wade in chest deep water 12 blocks back to the rendezvous point, stopping on the way assisting civilians to higher ground. Water levels would continue to rise, eventually causing an electrical short in the motor and starting the fire.
