Does the City still own any of the firehouses that were closed?

The Tin House at Rockaway Ave. & Bergen St. is now EMS 44 Batt.. Was the home to Eng. 232 & Lad 176 till 232 was disbanded on 1/31/88, AKA Super bowl Sunday. L176 was moved to new Qtrs. on June 29 of 87 with Eng. 233 & CADO unit. Tin House was opened 9/24/71 with 232 & 732 occuping till 732 was disbanded on Aug. 5 1972. L176 was established in the Tin House Nov. 24,1972. While we there the next door neighbor owned the property and the City was just renting it. When we left the City bought the land.

E 248’s old quarters at 2261 Church Avenue ha been replaced by a modern three story building. The front of the new building is in line with others on the block, not recessed back in the property the way the firehouse was. The old Democratic Club next door is now a church.

Did some research really these 3 companies should be brought back from 2003 (Really should be all of them)

Engine 36 - Can't come back at the house they had but since they closed they did 2,759 Runs in 2002 and E35 down the street did 2,368 Runs
Now Engine 35 did 5,459 in 2020 would be more if COVID wasn't around.....

Engine 209 was with Ladder 102 and saw a jump of 843 Calls in that area from E230

Engine 261 was with Ladder 116 and saw a jump of 1,976 Calls in that area from E260


Engine 204 -
Engine 212 -
Engine 278 - Now EMS Station
