Westbury Fire Department

Organized in 1897, Westbury’s volunteers provide Fire, Rescue & EMS protection to a mixed residential & commercial area. Operating from two stations, the department has a longstanding tradition of operating Mack apparatus including the last MC chassis produced for their heavy rescue which is still in active front line service.

Engine 9610 - 1999 Mack MC/Saulsbury 1500 gpm/750 gal.

In keeping with their long tradition of operating Mack fire apparatus, Westbury ordered this rig mounted on a Mack MC chassis with a crew cab & pumper body constructed by Saulsbury.

Tower Ladder 969 - 1981 Mack/Baker 75’ Aerialscope

Originally serving as FDNY Ladder 54 in the Bronx, this rig was one of the last single axle tower ladders ordered by FDNY. Upon being acquired by Westbury in 1993, it was sent to Baker for a complete rehab including a new custom body. After faithfully serving for 17 years, this rig is being replaced in August 2010 with a new Crimson 100‘ mid-mount ladder tower.

Special thanks to Ex-Chiefs Bob Borra & Italio Vacchio for their assistance in positioning the tower ladder & providing background on the department’s rigs.
