Rescue Company 2 of the FDNY is certainly one of the most famous fire companies in the entire world. Since their organization on March 1, 1925, ninety two of their members have been awarded individual medals for valor. In addition, the company itself has been given fifty-three Unit Citations for acts of valor. Rescue 2 was first organized in the quarters of Engine Company 210 at 160 Carlton Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, which they shared with that company. On October 22, 1929, they moved to the former headquarters building at 365 Jay Street, which they shared with the now defunct Water Tower 6. They moved back to the quarters of Engine 210 at 160 Carlton Avenue on May 1, 1946 and remained there until July 26, 1985, when they moved to their present quarters at 1472 Bergen Street, Brooklyn. They are the only occupants of that station, which was formerly the quarters of Engine Company 234 and later the now defunct Fire Salvage 1.

Rescue Company 2 is one of sixteen company sized unites in the FDNYs Special Operations Command, the others being Rescue Companies 1, 3, 4, 5, Squad Companies 1, 18, 41, 61, 252, 270, 288, Marine Companies 1, 6, 9, and Haz-Mat Company 1. In 2005, Rescue 2 responded to 3,531 alarms, of which 933 were workers.

The 1991 Mack Rescue, which carries FDNY registration number MR9101, resulted in the 19 foot Saulsbury body, originally mounted on a 1982 American LaFrance tilt cab cab and chassis and carrying FDNY registration number AR8201, being removed and placed on a new 1991 Mack model MC688C tilt-cab cab and chassis. It was originally assigned to Rescue 2, with the original American LaFrance chassis, in January 1982. After receiving the new cab and chassis, it was used mainly as a spare rescue, however was assigned to Rescue 2 in February 1995 and served there until they received their new 1996 HME/Saulsbury rescue in April 1997. It then again became a spare rescue, however did return to Rescue 2 following the destruction of the 1996 HME/Saulsbury on 9/11/01. Rescue 2 received their current apparatus, a 2002 E-One/Saulsbury rescue in August 2002.

MR9101 was converted at the FDNY Shops in 2004 to be a Collapse Rescue Unit, first as Collapse Rescue 2, then Collapse Rescue 1 and later as Collapse Rescue 5. The equipment carried by the five Collapse Rescues (one per borough and a part of Special Operations Command), are normally operated by the members of the five Rescue Companies.
