The official house "duty" t-shirt of E249/L113 in NYC is available due to an overrun of prints. Printed with "FDNY" on the back and left chest logo of the house patch, these t-shirts are light and non-restrictive making them perfect for wearing around the firehouse or under your gear.
Engine 249 and Ladder 113, known as "Camp Rogers" or "The Rat House" in Brooklyn, NY cover the area between Crown Heights and Flatbush next to Prospect Park. Both companies are do around 3,800 to 4,400 runs each year and are consistently in the Top 20 busiest in the department. Their first-due area includes the site of the former Ebbets Field stadium for the Brooklyn Dogers (now a large housing project complex) as well as the King County Hospital and SUNY Downstate Hospital complexes. The residential density is one of the highest in the city (causing the high run volume) and is the crime rate in the nearby 67 and 71 prescincts.

I enjoy collecting traditional FDNY firehouse T-shirts. This Engine 249/113 Truck T-shirt is well designed. Some FDNY T-shirts run as high as $29.99, making this one a true bargain @ $14.00 + reasonable S&H. Firecompaniesstore shipped it to me very quickly, and it arrived in perfect shape. I wish there were more FDNY items for sale, as I'm ready to come back for more.
