NYPD ESU officers during a tactical deployment. The Emergency Service Unit (ESU) is the multi-faceted and multi-talented element within municipal, county, or state authority law enforcement agency’s Special Operations command. ESU’s exist mainly in the regional New York City Area but includes several jurisdictions outside the region. ESU is also synonymous with the term Emergency Services Squad (ESS) and Emergency Service Detail (ESD). The ESU operates at the direction of the command staff and responds to emergency and high-risk situations that occur outside the scope of duties of responding patrol and criminal investigation units. ESU members train continually both in-house, with other local, state, Federal and military specialized units and sometimes members of a FEMA Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) Team. The ESU provides the Special Weapons and Tactical (SWAT) function for high-risk, tactical operations involving barricaded suspects, hostage situations, high-risk warrant service, tactical crowd control and dignitary/VIP protective operations. ESU’s also provide operations and technician level response to hazardous materials (HAZMAT) incidents involving the presence of industrial or illicit chemical, biological or radiological agents involving criminals or terrorists. The ESU responds to rescue victims from structural collapse, high-rise structure, confined spaces, trench collapse, vehicle and rail car accident, and machinery accident entrapments. Many ESU’s also perform both surface and under-water victim rescue, searches and evidence recovery as well as to provide “crisis response” to incidents involving psychological disturbed individual. ESU members sometimes provide immediate fire suppression and victim rescue for fires occurring in massive and highly populated structural locations that are under the direct jurisdiction of a state or municipal authority. ESU’s operations are often supported by a Canine (K-9) response capability and members often respond to incidents involving dangerous animals and reptiles. In some jurisdictions, ESU members may provide medical support and team member rescue during tactical operations and sometimes staff a dedicated ambulance.

ESU officers usually have at least five-(5) years experience as a patrol officer before being appointed to an ESU assignment. Then the candidate usually complete a minimum of eighteen-(18) weeks of specialized technical rescue training in the arenas of medical first responder or EMT training/certification, fire suppression, vehicle and machinery victim extrication, swift water rescue, structural collapse rescue, high and low-angle tactical rope rescue, confined space rescue, trench rescue and water rescue. ESU members tactical SWAT training includes the use of irritant chemical agents, HAZMAT personal protective equipment (PPE), victim technical rescue equipment, forcible entry techniques, elevator rescue, HAZMAT detection instruments, HAZMAT decontamination, dangerous animal and reptile management, defensive electronic immobilization shields, barricade response, tactical formations, and the use of a myriad of both semi-automatic and fully automatic firearms. ESU members are usually cross-trained and maintain both state and National certification as a Medical First Responder, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or Paramedic and sometimes as a Psychological Services Technician (PST). ESU members may also be trained at the National Firefighter 1 level to provide initial response and fire suppression within massive and highly populated fixed structural locations. ESU Equipment ESU equipment can include an automated external defibrillator (AED), vehicle extrication tools, self contained breathing apparatus, high-angle and low-angle rope and victim rescue equipment, saws, SCUBA, forcible entry tools, lighting equipment, hazardous material personal protective gear, irritant chemical agents, HAZMAT detection instruments, HAZMAT PPE, HAZMAT decontamination, pneumatic breaching tools, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), water rescue gear, animal control tools, semi and fully-automatic firearms, and ballistic gear, portable cutting and hand tools, high-energy hydraulic rescue tools, metal detectors, climbing gear, body bunker ballistic shields, portable field lighting, small marine craft, underwater scuba operations, fire-fighter protective clothing, ballistic body amour and shields, basic life support (BLS) or advanced life support (ALS), medical equipment. ESU Response Vehicles ESU utilizes smaller patrol response vehicles which are supported by a larger utility “squad” type trucks. Smaller patrol ESU response vehicles can range from an SUV to a light or medium duty truck or van with a rear mounted utility body. Larger ESU vehicles can range from a medium duty chassis to a heavy duty “squad” utility body mounted on a commercial chassis. Other ESU support vehicles can include one or more ambulances, wheeled or tracked armored vehicle, portable light towers/generators up to 100Kw, emergency support vehicles which contain inflatable marine watercraft or massive inflatable airbags, Non-Law Enforcement ESU’s ESU’s also exist as a non-law enforcement agency based municipal, county or non-government entity and may exist as both career and volunteer groups which are located in both urban, rural and remote areas. In urban areas, ESU’s provide temporary emergency response to incidents during major public events to support the jurisdictions primary 911 EMS, fire and rescue service. Urban ESU's also provide tactical emergency medical support, rescue of confined space victims, wildland/urban interface initial fire suppression, underwater rescue/recovery, high angle rope rescue, wildland search & rescue (SAR), auto accidents victim rescue, building collapses. In rural areas, ESU’s provide suppression of wildland forest, brush and grass fires that occur, cliff and mountain search and rescue, underwater search and rescue, swift water and flood rescue operations, The key rationale for the integration of the functions is that many rural and remote communities do not have dedicated staffing, resources and infrastructure to sustain immediate 24/7 emergency response. NYPD ESU at the site of the World Trade Center as part of Rescue and recovery effort after the September 11, 2001 attacks. NYPD The New York City Police Department Emergency Service Unit is the largest ESU with over 300 personnel. ESU and the Canine Unit provide specialized equipment, expertise and support to the various units within the NYPD. From auto accidents to building collapses to hostage situations, "ESU" officers are called on when the situation requires advanced equipment and expertise. The Canine Unit provides assistance during searches for missing persons, perpetrators and evidence. Fourteen of the twenty-three NYPD officers who died on September 11th, 2001 were from ESU. PAPD The Port Authority Police Emergency Services Unit was founded in 1983, over the objections of the Port Authority Police management at that time. Working with the non-police PATH railroad personnel and railroad management, who clearly recognized the need for a rapid response to PATH railroad emergencies and fires, a small group of Port Authority Police officers assigned to the PATH command asked for, and got, a stock Port Authority utility truck which was converted for police emergency use. Despite the continued objections of P.A. Police management, the PATH railroad management's goal of having an "Emergency Response Vehicle" operated by the police bore fruit. The initial team members were trained in underground rescue, extrication of passengers from PATH train cars and first aid, with emphasis on the procedure of lifting railroad cars from trapped persons by use of Vetter air bags. Prior to the PATH Emergency Unit, emergencies which occurred on the PATH train were handled by the local police within the jurisdictions around the PATH train (Jersey City, New York, Newark, etc).[2] Emergency Services Unit members, who have received specialized training to respond to emergency and rescue operations that arise at Port Authority facilities or in other jurisdictions when their expertise is requested are currently assigned to various facilities throughout the Port Authority. Emergency Services Unit members may receive training in the following areas; animal control, hazardous material response, heavy weapon use, bridge and water rescue and tactical operations. Noteworthy cases that the Emergency Services Unit has handled or other jurisdictions in handling include:[2] The collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 The 1993 World Trade Center bombing The rescue of an emotionally disturbed person from a water tower in West New York, N.J. A General Aviation crash in the City of Newark The rescue of homeowners in Bound Brook, N.J. trapped by rising floodwaters caused by Hurricane Floyd in 1999 A ceiling collapse at the Journal Square Transportation Center Water rescues from the PATH system in 1992 A NJ Transit train accident in the Hackensack Meadowlands in 1996 References E-Man: Life in the NYPD Emergency Services Unit (Paperback) by Jerry Schmetterer and Al Sheppard [Out of print] Movies IMDB article on NYPD Emergency Service Unit (2000) A TV documentary.
