FDNY Ladder Company 30 - 2002 Seagrave 100 Foot Aerial
Ladder 30 was organized as Hook & Ladder 30, in their then new quarters at 104 West 135th Street, in the section of Manhattan known as Harlem, just over 100 years ago on February 1, 1907. Their first apparatus was a then new horse drawn 1907 Seagrave, equipped with a wood 85 foot aerial, which was pulled by three horses. The 1907 Seagrave was motorized with a Christie tractor in 1916 and remained at 30 until January 28, 1926, when replaced with a new 75 foot Seagrave aerial. Their current apparatus is a 2002 Seagrave 100 foot rear mount aerial, powered by a Detroit Diesel series 60 engine. It has FDNY registration number SL (for Seagrave ladder) 02013 and entered service on August 27, 2002. The truck has several distinctive graphics that have been added by the company itself. On November 1, 1962, they moved to their current fire station at 113 West 133rd Street, which they share with Engine Company 59. Their first alarm area consists of many old tenements and retail stores, as well as some high-rise housing projects. They have always been considered one of the most decorated and hardest working ladder companies in the City. In 2006, they responded to 3,137 alarms, of which 2,495 were workers. They have had a total of 33 individual medals of valor awarded to their members since inception, as well as 26 unit citations for valor. Three of their members have perished in line of duty deaths. Ladder Company 30 is celebrating its 100 years of service to the Harlem community this year.
