Ghosts Encountered Slimer

The Firehouse is the headquarters of the Ghostbusters.

OverallEdit

At one point, Egon Spengler installed shutters impervious to ectoplasm throughout the Firehouse.[2] When activated, no ghosts could exit the building. It was only known to be used once against the Copycat. By 1997, an elevator lift was added the Firehouse. It extended from the garage bay to the rec room on the second floor, and the third floor.

BelowEdit

BasementEdit

The basement first of all is where the Containment Unit is. The Laundry Area is located between the Containment Unit and the control panel.[3] The Basement floor is directly above the ceiling of the sewer tunnels below.[4] It also became Egon's study in later years.

WorkroomEdit

It was a rarely shown room that was behind the Containment Unit.[5][6]

Stair CaseEdit

The staircase starts from the basement door and leads around a corner and then to the first near the Uniform Closets.

First FloorEdit

GarageEdit

The garage is between the doors and Janine's desk. On one side of the room is the Ghostbusting equipment and uniform closets. On the other side are toolboxes, a work bench, and boxes of car parts. Ray and Winston often seen working on the high maintenance Ecto-1 in the garage. Sometimes the floor has oil or other fluids that leaked from Ecto-1 on it.

Secretary DeskEdit

Janine's desk setup is a typical for a secretary. It has a computer, a typewriter, and a large telephone on it. Next to the phone is a big red button that activates the fire bell, alerting the Ghostbusters that they have a customer or a general call. Behind it are file cabinets that have everything from customer invoices to blueprints to Ghostbusting equipment and act as a wall between Janine's and Peter's desks. All the drawers are rarely locked.

Peter's OfficeEdit

Peter's offices consist of his desk, two chairs in front of the desk (for customers), and an executive chair behind it. His desk has very little paperwork inside it and is more of a foot rest to him. It is loaded with nick-knacks to keep Peter occupied and stuff that he wants to hide from Slimer.

Back RoomEdit

The Back Room was another section dedicated to experiments. In the Back Room, Egon quickly developed the Silver Iodide Device to help rescue Ray from Simon Quegg's Horse and Buggy.[7] Ray and Egon once developed the Dimensionometer there.[8] By 1997, the door to the back room now led to a rest room.

Second FloorEdit

Rec RoomEdit

The rec room contains a home entertainment system, lots of furniture, a study, and a library. A case holding a statue of Peter Venkman in uniform was later added near the study area.

KitchenEdit

The kitchen is rarely stocked due to Slimer's appetite. The Ghostbusters take turns cooking.

Third FloorEdit

Sleeping QuartersEdit

All the Ghostbusters sleep in separate beds. Ray's has a TV attached to the foot of the bed and Egon has a reading lamp. Slimer is fond of sleeping on Peter's pillow.

HallEdit

The Hall connects all three rooms on the third floor along with having the Spiral Staircases which goes down to the rec room area on the second floor.

BathroomEdit

The bathroom is located on the third floor. It includes standard amenities such as a toilet and bath tub/shower. The room has its own phone which extends out to the shower.

Egon's LabEdit

Egon's lab serves as the Ghostbuster's Research and Development division. It also has a state of the art and fully equipped scientific laboratory. Egon is emotionally bonded to his computer which is located inside of the lab. The lab also has a cluster of instruments monitoring the Containment Unit so the Ghostbusters don't need to go downstairs to check on it. Egon is assisted by Ray, Slimer, and/or Winston during his daily experiments. There is also equipment set up to specifically take P.K.E. readings at timed intervals.

Attic/RoofEdit

AtticEdit

It seems that Slimer has a little room up in the attic. He was only seen in there when he was grumbling over Peter Venkman yelling at him for interfering with everything.[9]

RoofEdit

What exactly is on the roof changes with each episode. Some items include: a water tower, skylight, one or two TV/CB/Radio antenna, a satellite dish, at least two smokestacks, a stairwell, gutters, a storm drain, landing pad, and unspecified Ghostbusting equipment. At one point, Slimer built his own clubhouse on the roof.[10]

WorkshopEdit

Across from the alley on the side of the Firehouse, Roland Jackson worked on equipment repairs, servicing, and inventing from a ground level space converted into a work shop.

Phone NumbersEdit

The Firehouse has used three phone numbers total.
