Day in the Life of Jersey City Fire Department's Rescue 1, Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011: Walter Milne performs inventory on the Rescue 1 truck's tools and makes sure they are in working order, a routine that has to be done by every shift. "The priority is making sure everything is ready to go at a moment's notice," he said. The truck is packed with equipment such as ropes, harnesses, chainsaws, inflatable jacks and even an inflatable boat for a variety of scenarios including floods, high-rise rescues, confined space rescues and extrications. "We call this rig the giant tool box," he said.
