Yes, all 500 series engines are reserve apparatus.

Just to clarify, E-513 is a reserve, not a spare. Spares carry no equipment. Reserves are fully loaded and marked as Engine 5XX, or Ladder 7XX.

Understood, thanks.

I noticed on the front of 168's house below "Engine 168", the words "Ladder" without a company number. Is there a proposed Ladder Company to be housed with 168?

I don't know about E-168 getting a truck company but I have seen a single engine co. before and it had Hook & Ladder blank next to the Engine Co.'s number. Maybe they were supposed to have truck co's with them years ago and it never happened and they left the lettering up? or there was a truck with them and they got relocated to a different house? I'll ask around.

I think you will find many single engine houses throughout the city that are lettered for a ladder company but one doesn't exist.  Engine 248 moved from their old house at 2261 Church Avenue, near Bedford, to a "new" house in 1972.  That current house is at 2900 Snyder Avenue, near Nostrand.  It has been lettered for a ladder company since it was built in 1972.  The only ladder assigned there was Ladder 113 who moved there temporarily when their house was being rebuilt.

E168's house was built after 9/11 with the intention of opening a combined Engine/Ladder/EMS house.  The house was not filled until 2005 after a fatal fire in what is now E168's first due area.  However, E168's opening came not long after the closing of several other engine companies citywide, so to keep costs (and complaints) to a minimal, E168 was opened as a single-engine house.

I knew it. I was thinking 72 because I remembered seeing it but I looked at a pic of their quarters and didn't see it and I second guessed myself. Ahh...now I have closure  :). Thanks.

That would've made E165 the first Squad housed with a truck co.  ;)
