At the October 16, 1923 meeting the membership approved the request to form Hose Co. 2 and Hook and Ladder Co. 2, in November the names of the perspective members were submitted to the Town of North Hempstead for approval and on December 18, 1923 these companies were accepted into the Westbury Fire Dept. These company's original station was located on Broadway between Sherman and Seigel streets, until 1932 when the current fire headquarters on Maple Ave. was completed, then Hook and Ladder Co 2 members merged with Hose Co # 2, forming 1 company. Hose Co 2 maintained 2 Engines and 1 Ladder Truck until 2013 when the current tower ladder was purchased and was given to Hook and Ladder Co 1 to maintain.
