02/28/06 57 W - + 15 - 16 Raleigh Station 28

Groundbreaking on Raleigh Fire Station 28 is expected in March. The single-story station with three double-length bays is planned to house one engine company. Located on Forestville Road just south of Mitchell Mill Road, e.g. Wake Crossroads, the facility should open in early 2007. From the most recent CIP budget document, the cost is almost $2 million.

Here’s an updated map to help visualize the location: http://www.legeros.com/ralwake/gallery/m..

With three bays at Sta. 28 is there any talk of moving HazMat equipment from Sta. 15 or Sta. 22 into the new station?

no. but there is talk of all the antiques being moved to sta. 28 to make much needed room for reserves.

Raleigh’s three antiques are scattered about the city. The 1905 steamer is presently at Station 8, the 1926 American LaFrance pumper is at Station 27, and the 1950 Mack pumper is at Station 25.

Also, there is talk on the EMS side of moving an ALS unit to the area, to provide coverage for the growing area out there. The same unit could also cover the Durant Road corridor, replacing the EMS unit that stays during the day at Station 22. This would have the advantage of giving it a permanant home, as well as relieving the crowding at 22.
