09/08/10 123 W, 1 I - + 7 - 2 Carrboro Opens Station 2

This Durham Herald-Sun article reports that Carrboro Fire Department opened their second fire station Tuesday. Located north of town at 1411 Homestead Road, the $3 million facility will house an engine company with four firefighters. The two-bay building was built on land donated by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They've leased the lot to the town for 99 years at one dollar per year. The station, which has been 30 years in the making, is equipped with two apparatus bays, a training room, an exercise room, a day room with cushioned chairs (of course), bedrooms, kitchen, and a small patio with picnic table and outdoor grill.
