Engine 82 was organized on September 5th, 1905 in their current quarters located
at 1215 Intervale Avenue in the Bronx. Engine 82 was made famous by a former
member of the company, Dennis Smith, who authored 'Report From Engine Company
82'. This book highlighted the war years of the Bronx burning.
Their first alarm response area consisted of many large tenements and H-type
buildings. However, during the fire war years most of these buildings were
replaced by one and two family homes. Engine 82 shares their quarters with
Ladder 31. Their house nickname is 'La Casa Grande' The Big House. Engine 82
over the years had four medal day winners, 16 Unit Citations and only one death
in the line of duty. Engine 82 operates a 1993 Seagrave 1000 gpm pumper with a
500-gallon water tank.
Ladder 31, was organized on May 1st, 1907 in their current quarters they share
with Engine 82. Like Engine 82, Ladder 31 was also made famous by Engine 82's
firefighter Dennis Smith's book. During the fire war years both companies were
one of the busiest companies in the department. Their response area like Engine
82 still includes tenements and one and two family homes. Ladder 31 had 28 medal
day winners and 20 Unit Citations awarded to them. Today Ladder 31 is assigned a
1999 Seagrave Aerialscope 75 foot Tower Ladder.
