Possible delay in emergency responses today

We'll periodically have information on local fire companies that service, in part, the East Village ... including when they are closed for periods of time...

The following companies located in the East Village OR that respond to emergencies in the East Village will be on Building Inspection at the following times today (and every Tuesday):

E-5, E-15, E-28 — 10 AM-1 PM.
L-9, E-55, E-9 — 1 PM-4 PM.


Ladder 20, located in on Lafayette Street, but responds to emergencies in parts of the East Village, will be CLOSED today from 12:30 PM-4:30 PM due to training at the Fire Academy on Randall's Island.

And did you know that two fire companies charged with protecting the East Village were CLOSED for periods of time yesterday?

Engine 9, which is located in Chinatown (Canal Street between Allen Street and Eldridge Street), but responds into the East Village, was CLOSED yesterday from 9 AM until 4 PM for New Apparatus Familiarization Drill at the Fire Academy.

Engine 33, located in the East Village (Great Jones Street), was CLOSED yesterday from 7 PM - 10 PM for Basic Competency Critique at the Fire Academy.

E-28 was CLOSED yesterday as well from 10:45 AM - 3:40PM to pick-up and restock new rig. During this time they were not able to respond to a fire at 535 E. 14th Street, at which they are 2nd Due.
