I saw a photo of the above mentioned units' quarters which appears to be an incredibly huge firehouse than one would normally see in NYC. Does this firehouse also have ambulances running out of it? i saw the EMS symbol next to the FDNY logo on the front of the building. Anyone chime in please.

This is one of two houses which have EMS and Fire together.  Both the Firehouse and EMS Station were falling apart so they built one big one for everyone.  The Battalion was also moved and placed in the new house.

Not sure how many EMS units run out of the house.

Thanks for the info fellas! Tommy: What's the other firehouse with the ambulances and is this going to be the norm when it comes to building new firehouses?

Five Ambulances run out of the station or more correctly they change shifts and resupply at the station.
