Our Firehouse, February, 2002.

Ladder 101 firefighter
at the WTC.

Located just outside the Red Hook, Brooklyn end of the Brooklyn-Battery tunnel, this firehouse was one of the first firehouses to respond to the September 11, 2001 attack on the WTC.

On that day Ladder 101 lost all seven men who answered that call. Their brothers from Engine 202, who also answered that call, were uninjured. Both the engine and ladder trucks were destroyed.

This website is dedicated to documenting the story of this firehouse.

Gas Leak Explosion.
East 62st Manhattan

July 10, 2006

Engine 202 joined many other units from the FDNY and NYPD at the site of a gas leak explosion that leveled a townhouse on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Thanksgiving 2001, the firehouse accepts a check for $354,000 (ultimately more than $500,000 would be raised) from the students of White Knoll Middle School in Columbia, South Carolina. This money will be spent on new firetrucks to replace the two destroyed at the WTC.
