Ladder 39 was organized February 1, 1909 and was originally housed with Engine 89 in the Woodlawn section of the Bronx. Ladder 39 was organized in response to a demand by the residents of Woodlawn for fire protection after the neighborhood was annexed from Yonkers by the City of New York. In June 2006 Ladder 39 was permanently relocated to the quarters of Engine 63, Battalion 15, leaving behind the only wood frame firehouse left standing in New York City. Ladder 39 currently operates a 2002 Seagrave 100‘ tractor drawn, tiller aerial (The only tiller in the Bronx) . Ladder 39 has a tiller due to the extremely tight streets in our first due area. Ladder 39 along with Engine 63 has the largest first due area in the Bronx. Responding from our firehouse on E. 233 St we respond south to E 222 St, North to the city line at E 243 St, west to the Major Deegan Expressway (I-87) and east just past Baychester Rd. Our response area is one of the most diverse in the city in regards to the types of structures we respond to. We have a large taxpayer core along White Plains Rd, wood frame and masonry private dwellings, large tenements, housing projects, hospitals, and brownstone style buildings. As with all ladder companies in the city Ladder 39 rides with 5 firefighters and an officer. The truck company consists of an inside team (forcible entry and can firefighters), a chauffeur and an outside team (roof and outside vent firefighters). The outside vent position is the tillerman. The members of Ladder 39 will continue to provide the residents of the north Bronx with outstanding fire protection in our new location, as they have for the past 100 years.
