Station 2 - Engine Co. 2

“The Best from the West”

Engine 2-11-12 - 2006 Spartan/Saulsbury 2000 gpm/500 gal.

This rig is equipped with a Roto-Ray warning light, a rarity on Long Island apparatus. While rigs here on Long Island are known for being well appointed, oddly enough, Roto-Rays never “caught on” as a popular auxiliary warning device.

FIREMATIC HISTORY

Engine 2-11-2 - 1990 Spartan/FMC 2000 gpm/500 gal.

This engine as well as Engine 2-11-4 was picked up by Commack after a large metropolitan career department in Ohio defaulted on an order. After 21 years of faithful service, this rig (along with Engines 4 & 11) is scheduled for replacement in 2012 (presumably with a Smeal).

Privately owned by a member of Commack, this vintage 1970’s Ward LaFrance Ambassador series engine originally served the Melville FD and then the Nissequogue FD before coming to its’ third career shown here at Commack’s training center. The rig is due to be returned to Melville who plans to restore it as a parade piece.

Station 2 is also home to the department’s training center.

Protecting the west end of the district, Station 2 is home to two engines.
