Rescue 3 moved from Manhattan to the Bronx in the early 1990s, and THAT wasn't on the Dep't Orders for a couple years.

Relocated to Ladder 20 on Lafayette Street.
When did they move?  Has it been only a month or was it earlier?
Not sure when they actually moved but the announcement was only put on the DO last week......see paragraph 2.6 http://www.nyc.gov/html/fdny/insider/resources/do/2016/005_2016.pdf

JOR176 and Signal73 mentioned it back on January 1st

The reason why so many Engines were disbanded in that time was because before 1957 or 59 there were 4 Engines assigned on the Box in lower man. below 59th St. and that was changed to 3 Engines on the Box, and the Engines were on top of one another in Lower Manhattan during that period. The Ladder 8 thing I would think that if the Dept really looked at that a better move would be to put them in Eng 91 because of the High stats of 26 & 43.   Just one persons opinion.

Not a truck company on the job that wants another ladder company to move into their area.  Last thing midtown needs is another 100 ft aerial on the streets.  Neighborhoods change, and we adjust.  Keep ladder 8 right where they are....
I just want one more good fire

True about most not wanting another LAD  moving in their neighborhood .....a real help to busy Units would be a Building Insp task force & maybe some hydrant insp teams to relieve some of the administrative burden

Enginecap.Maybe I worded it wrong and should have left out L8 and just said a Ladder Co. I didn't mean the get anyone out of sorts here.

Thanks for the information on Ladder 8 and the interesting discussion on the reassignment of Ladder companies.
