Tower Ladder 159 Engine 309 brooklyn fire house renovation
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:01:30 PM »
I was driving buy there fire house  on Flatbush ave and I saw that they are bulding a new bay where there back yard special truck storage was. Are they bulding that to house the CPC truck and Highway response truck 159?

Also since they built new bridges on the belt park they hole reasoning for the highway response truck will they disband them once the last of three bridges Are complete ?
Tower ladder 170 has one also ? Highway response

That's not a new bay. Where the alley is, that's going to be the entrance and housewatch. They are going to piggy back the cpc rig behind the engine. Construction has been delayed due to the workers putting the new floor 6 inches to high, not allowing the truck to fit in.  I believe the units will have the highway response units until the mill basin draw bridge is repaired.

Does anybody know what they actually did to the house?  They could've torn down and build a new house quicker than that!
