Hurricane Sandy: Broad Channel VFD in Queens wiped out. Engine burns

The image above is from the Facebook page of the Broad Channel VFD in Queens, New York showing Engine 209, a 1989 Hahn. There is also this message:
Although we lost our trucks and ambulances, our chief vehicles and our computer equipment and like most of the town, have extensive water damage ….. We can finally and officially report that each and every member of the BCVFD is accounted for. Thank you all for your well wishes, love and support. We will keep you updated… 
The Broad Channel VFD has been operating in Queens since 1905. Read more about its history on the department's website.
The department became embroiled in a battle with FDNY around 2008 over federal money to build a new firehouse. On the department website it has the latest information on the progress towards a new building (prior to Sandy).
