F.D.N.Y. Engine Co. 45
Engine Company 45 is located at 925-927 East Tremont Avenue, Bronx, NY. 45's
first-alarm area features tenements, project buildings, retails stores, small
commercial buildings, schools, hospitals and the Bronx Zoo. They have had 24
unit citations and four individual medal winners and one company medal. They
remain one of the busiest engines.
Engine Company 45 received their 1981 Mack type CF 1000 gpm pumper, carrying
FDNY registration number MP8104, on November 5, 1982. Equipped with a 500-gallon
booster tank, it replaced a 1975 Mack CF 1000 gpm pumper at this very unit. Even
though delivered in 1982, it was classed by the FDNY as a 1981 as it was
actually ordered in that year. This was the first and only multiple order of the
FDNY pumpers to be delivered in the controversial lime yellow color. There were
a total of ten pumpers in the order and followed a single lime yellow 1000 gpm
American LaFrance pumper in 1980. The pilot program was not well received and
Engine 45's pumper, as well as, two others, was re-painted white over red in
1985. It remained in service at Engine Company 45 until June 11, 1993, when it
was replaced by a 1993 Seagrave 1000 gpm pumper.
