Engine Co. 2
Updated On: Aug 11, 2012

Engine Co. 2 is located on the corner of Gibbons st. and Pittston ave. Also housed here is Engine no. 1, one of three spare engines, and is where the departments’ hose is repaired.

Engine Co. 2 ‘s first due area covers Southside and Minooka, and will respond to E. Mountain, West Side , Central City, and the Hill Section in the event of a Second Alarm. Engine Co. 2 is designated as one of Lackawanna County’s Decon units

 Engine Co. 2 was one of the original volunteer companies, Neptune Engine no. 2.
and called 820 Cedar ave. home.

    Prior to housing Engine Co. 2, the station on Gibbons st. was the home of Engine Co. 13 and before that Hose no. 5. Hose no. 5 would respond from this location until the department reassigned all Hose companies as Engine companies in the late 1960’s.

In 1980 in an effort to consolidate, the station on Gibbons st was heavily remodeled adding a second apparatus bay to accommodate Engine Co. 2 and Engine Co. 13. The station on Cedar ave was closed and would be sold to a private owner and still stands today.  Engine Co. 13 would be disbanded in 1996.

Engine 2 is a 2012 KME Pumper with a 1500 gpm pump and a 1000 gallon booster tank. Engine co. 2 has four firefighters assigned to it.
