EMS Stations are in the following (former/current) fire houses:
BRONX
Station 55 - Engine 71, Ladder 55, Battalion 26, (Rescue 3 former qtrs.) @ 3134 Park Ave

  Thanks Atlas, that sure about covers it. Nice job. Plus I didn't know that the Bronx had a Station #55. I thought the Bronx EMS Stations were all numbered in the teens and twenties.

  Yes G-man. Forgot about that. I guess they didn't just pick the number out of a hat. It kind of threw me off. Thanks.

Just remember that EMS Station 18 is in the old Batt 56 area.  Several years ago there was talk of opening a station in the area of either Eng 45 or 88. That was going to be Batt 18's station, but they obtained the land on Bathgate Ave & built a new station a few blocks south of Batt 56 former qtrs. The station is in Batt 17, but Batt 17's EMS station was already established in the Highbridge section so they used Batt 18's number.

However, there are no EMS a units assigned with either 55 or 56 ID numbers.
