Engine Company 225 Brooklyn

Engine Company 225 started out as Engine 25 of The Brooklyn Fire Department in August 4,1886

It was later reorganized to Engine Company 225 on January 1,1913.

It wasn't easy for an Engine working in East New York Brooklyn in the 80s!

Subject: EX -ENGINE 225 BROOKLYN (1982 Amerian-LaFrance) Date: Thu, 3 Apr 1997 20:43:45 -0800 From: "NORM LOCKE" To: Hi Don, First off, the unofficial FDNY Site is real nice... good job. Secondly, I work out of a combination paid/volly station 9 miles from the City of Pittsburgh. North Versailles Township Sunset-Central Fire Department. We placed in service in 1992 a 1982 American LaFrance Century Model. It was retired as E225 Brooklyn and sold to KenCo Inc., where it was COMPLETELY restored. It is an emaculate piece. I am looking for in service pictures of it in FDNY. It had a painting on the drivers side rear door of an eagle and read, "None but the Brave". If you could help me or if you cant, please E-Mail me back... I apreciate it. Lt. Norman Locke Engine Co. 602 fdnv60@usaor.com
