04/17/07 74 W, 1 I - + 9 - 12 Station 28

Station 28 should open Monday, we're told. It'll be staffed with a single engine company. The three oldest antiques will also be there, the 1905 American LaFrance (steamer), the 1926 American LaFrance, and the 1950 Mack. They may also move a Mack pumper and the Mack platform out there. The 9,960 square-foot facility is the first three-bay station built by the city in 50+ years. It cost some $2.3 million, building plus land.

Where would the Raleigh Fire Department be without “This End Up” furniture?

Ummmm, Engine 28 is a Pierce enclosed cab, I think it’s the old E-15….

About Six Months Ago, I thought I saw a brand new Pierce with E-28 On it, correct me if I am wrong.

Good one “Gold”....no, you are incorrect. There’s an older Pierce, enclosed cab, with “28” markings on it. It’s been at Keeter as well as Fire Services.

Thank You “Silver”

The signage for the station is pending. It will look like the last stations, but darker. There are ten bedrooms, a couple of which are larger captain’s rooms. There’s also an office, an exercise room, and a PPE storage room. No coat racks in these bays!

E-28 is a 95’-96’ Pierce (Dash) i think. It was originally E-15, which is the sister to E-21 (originally E-11).

Are their any future plans for adding additional companies to the station in the future? It just seems as if the one residential fridge wont cut it if others are added. Ideally each shift would have thier own, but as we all know, that costs more money….Just a thought.

The trend in the RFD is 1 refrigerator. I know #1 has more than 1 due to the number of personnel. But, unless you bring another from home, I haven’t seen services issue more than 1 to a house. I know in Durham, we had multiple fridges which was nice.

In Cary each firefighter gets a personal Chef.

Holly Springs station #1 has three refrigerators.
