RAC units, cool down (fan) units - maybe with RAC.

Thawing units,  Brush fire units, Scuba units.

In the old days (pre 9/11) the SA & RC quartered there canteen units in FDNY houses, not sure if they still do.

Im pretty sure some engine companies are Tactical Units meaning they carry bullet proof vests, etc. for response to high risk police events.  I saw some FFs with vests during the Chelsea bombing a year or two ago.  Please correct me if wrong.
