North Hudson Squad 2 is staged in front of the old 43rd Street firehouse in Union City, while the company operated at a small commercial fire around the corner on Bergenline Avenue, Feb. 22nd. The firehouse originally served as volunteer Columbia Engine Co. 2 for the former Town of Union Hill F.D. When Union City was formed, in 1925, it became the home of Engine 4 and Truck 3. In 1999, it was the quarters of North Hudson Regional Engine Co. 5, until the company was moved to Park Avenue & 46th St., Weehawken. The building now serves as the headquarters for the Union City Police Motorcycle Squad.
