Jason,
We still use the written log book system know as the Journal or "The Book". The house watchman is responsible for keepng the book updated at all times throughout the day and night. Typical entries include responses out of and returning to quaters, daily drill activities, incoming personell, visitors entering quaters, cheifs entering quaters, and unusual occurences to name a few. Our responses are also entered into the NYFIRS computer system upon returning to quaters by the officer on duty. Our hosewatch is manned 24 hours a day at 3 hour intervals.
