    Finding Companies on this board

    You might notice that for the Fire Companies, we have used 3 digit numbers.

    So 'Engine 54' is listed as 'Engine 054'

    That is to make it easier to find the posts you want. The search engine will only look for words 3 digits or more.

    So, if you are looking for a company like Engine 1, or Engine 40, please put a zeroes in front when you are searching.

    ex: 001 or 040

    It looks like most of the posts luckily have been done with this 'coding' to make your searches easier. A special thanks go out to all the volunteers who used this format for the benefit of all. (even if you didn't use the code in your post, I still thank you for everything)

    The way the search engine is set up - you need at least 3 letters and/or numbers. So Engine 5 would be Engine 005

    Try that and see if it works. If not, let us know

    Please remember, there are separate boards for those houses that lost members on 9/11. You may not find Engine 5 if they didn't lose any firefighters.

    I tried searching for Engine 005, however nothing showed up as a match. FF Manuel Delvalle was with Engine 5. I am a new member, and I am not sure how to add his company to the site. Thanks. Emilie.

    Emilie,

    I have added Engine 005 for you. Post away

    Also, there is a separate board for Manuel Devalle.


    World Trade Center 9-11-2001 > D > Manuel Devalle.

    Or do a search on his name.

    Hope this helps.
