What makes Ladder 20's house so special? They have the Medical Division (Including the counselling unit), Engine 13, Division 1 & Rescue spare (R6) & going by the firehouse it has/did have Ladder 8 & now it's going to have the RAC Battalion.

Nothing really special about the house other than it's large and has a lot of room on the apparatus floor.

Engine 13 has been Disbanded since probably before you were born 1974

Rescue 6 is not housed there any more

BHS went to Metrotech many years ago. (Bureau Of Health Services) unless there is still some satellite office there but I doubt it.

Nothing BHS related there ...BHS has been gone from LAD*20 for many years the Medical Office that had been on Lafayette St with LAD*20 in the '70s is now in FD HQ at 9 Metro Tech .... in 1968 BHS was on Spring St in the former 3 Bay Qtrs of the old Triple Section ENG*30 ....back then other than the Medical Office the big FH on Spring St  was occupied by a Satellite Unit manned by 2 FFs ( & i think the Satellite Officer before the SAT Officer moved to Tillary St when the new 207/110/31 FH opened there & the Super Pumper moved there from Hooper St)...after BHS moved to Metro Tech the Fire Museum moved from Duane St ENG*7/LAD*1/BN*1 to where it is now on Spring St.......Thru the years the Unions fought for additional Medical Offices but the Job never made any....they want to make it harder to go to the Medical Office to deter Members from going sick.... The FH of LAD*20 is a very big FH (not so much as Apparatus Bays but relating to Office space upstairs & underground parking for smaller vehicles.

I believe Satellite 1 and the Satellite Officer moved from Spring Street (Eng. 30's qtrs) to Engine 9's old quarters at 55 East Broadway.
