Engine Company #2 was created in 1944.
The original Engine #2 was a 1937 Chevrolet Hose Wagon. This rig had a 500 GPM Darley pump but no water tank. The pump from this unit was re-mounted on the 1949 Chevrolet when it was purchased. Engine 1 and Engine 2 ran as a two-piece company up until 1965 where one rig carried the water and the other carried the hose.
The second unit for Engine Company #2 was a 1951 Reo/High Welding. This rig had a Barton 500 GPM pump and a 1200 gallon water tank. The Reo served as an engine until 1979 when it was modified as a foam unit and was disposed of in 1986.
The latest Engine 2 was purchased in 1978. This rig had a 1500 GPM pump and a 500 gallon water tank with a 40 gallon foam cell. Engine 2 was the first diesel powered vehicle and the first unit with crew seating purchased by Lafayette. This engine was the primary engine until 1991 when it was sent away for a total refurbishment. This included a new body and water tank, a 4 door cab enclosure, pump overhaul and reconfigured preconnected beds. The Mack CF ran on the frontline until 2021, when it was removed from service.
