F.D.N.Y Recuperation and Care Units

On June 27, 1996, the FDNY changed the designation of the Rehabilitation Units to "Recuperation and Care Units" (RAC Units). These units respond to "All hands" and provide members with cool drinks and cool towels during hot weather and warm drinks during cold weather. Designated areas also can be set up to facilitate cooling or warming of exposed members, depending upon weather conditions.

There are five "RAC" units, elements of the Special Operations Command. RAC 1 is located with Engine 91 in lower Harlem; RAC 2 is quartered with Engine 222 in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn; RAC 3 is with Rescue 3 in the Bronx; RAC 4 is quartered at SOC on Roosevelt Island; RAC 5 is with Engine 242 in southwest Brooklyn. Light duty personnel are utilized, with one firefighter assigned to each unit on each tour. Both commercial and military surplus ambulances are used.

Each RAC unit has an ice-making machine in quarters to keep its coolers filled. The units carry drinking water, disposable towels kept on ice, chairs, cots, E-Z Up canopies, tents, heaters, blankets, and showers or misting fans (which require an external water supply) that make a water mist for cooling without soaking
