Tooling down to my high school home of Morehead City in Carteret County, the town dedicated their new fire station last month. The former home of the Carteret News Times newspaper at 4034 Arendell Street was converted to a new Station 2 as designed by C. R. Francis Architecture. Here's some background on the project, via our prior posting.

As the floorplan below shows, the single-story building was transformed into a three-bay facility with dormitories, training rooms, and offices for the department staff. The building was also planned to house a police substation and a magistrate. The fire department moved into the building in December, as this News Times story noted. The station was dedicated on April 13.

From the fire department's web site, the station houses Engine 2 (2006 Sutphen 70-foot quint), Rescue 2 (2012 Ford F-250 QRV), and Med Bus 1 (2011 Sartin medical ambulance bus). See prior posting about the MAB.

The town has four fire department facilities: three fire stations and a "Station 4" training station used by the Crystal Coast Fire Academy. We'll pay a visit before long, and photograph the thing up and down. Either me or Lee Wilson, who usually takes a beach trip this time of year.
