Engine Company 7

Engine Company 7 was established on as one of the first units of the paid Metropolitan Fire Department, in the former quarters of volunteer Protector Engine 22 at 22 Chambers Street in lower Manhattan, on September 8, 1865. They then had a few interim locations before moving to their current big three door firehouse at 100 Duane Street, also in lower Manhattan, on December 31, 1905. They currently share this house with Ladder Company 1 and the Chiefs of the First Battalion. This is also the quarters of the Manhattan Borough Command. Over the years, this station was home to various FDNY special units, including Water Tower 1, Searchlight 1, Relay Hose Wagon 1, Smoke Ejector & Foamite Truck 1, as well as temporary homes for Ladder Company 10, Division 1 and Battalion 2. The NYC Fire Museum was also located here, prior to moving several blocks north to 278 Spring Street. During 2006, Engine 7 responded to 2,583 alarms, of which 1,816 were workers. Included amongst those were 1,072 medical emergencies. Their first alarm territory is made up mainly of large commercial buildings, as well as City Hall and numerous other government buildings. In the period between December 31, 1905 thru July 1, 1908 and again from December 3, 1925 thru July 1, 1939, Engine 7 operated as a double engine company, with each of the two sections having its own pumper and hose wagon. When first organized, they were equipped with a new 1865 Amoskeag first-size steamer and a 1865 Amoskeag two wheel hose tender. Their current apparatus, a 2002 Seagrave 1000 gpm pumper with FDNY registration number SP02001, entered service on April 29, 2002. Engine 7's previous 2000 Seagrave 1000 gpm pumper, SP00017, was destroyed on September 11, 2001.
