11/04/15 175 W, 1 I - + 8 - 4 New EMS Station Opens at Airport

Wake County EMS opened their new airport station yesterday. It's located at 6901 Mt. Herman Road, adjacent to site of the prior building. (Was a former warehouse first used by Six Forks EMS.) The station houses EMS 34 and EMS 35 at present. Those are twelve-hour trucks, currently operational from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. 

The new building is first three-bay county-built EMS station. And the first new EMS building since the Durant Road station opened in 2010. And now the tenth EMS-only for Wake County EMS. (Nine in Raleigh, one in Wake Forest.) Formal grand opening forthcoming.

See prior blog post with some history of our airport EMS stations. First one was an old house in airport property, opened in 1990. Replaced with two-bay station on National Guard Drive in 1997, and closed some years later. Third was the old warehouse on Mt. Herman Road, opened with Six Forks EMS in 2005 and Wake County EMS in 2011. Facility was vacated in October 2014. See another prior blog post.
