These are mobile phone photos of Asheville Station 7, which was built with an adjoining two-story community center. Municipal multipurpose buildings that include fire stations were pretty common in prior decades. Everyone's seen a town hall slash jail slash fire station slash police station. Those date to the 1900s and earlier. Other combinations we've all seen include fire stations and libraries, fire stations and police stations, and even fire stations and auditoriums. Er, rather, auditoriums with a fire station. See Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium, built 1932 and serving as Station 2 until 1969. What sort of "fire station and..." buildings are being built these days? Besides the obvious "public safety stations" that combine fire, EMS, and police? One that comes to mind is Raleigh's Station 26, built a couple years ago with a reserve communications center attached. What are some others? Are there many others in these days of departments needing larger (and more secure) facilities?
 







Durham EMS has a EMS station/community center or clinic, I forget which.

I don’t remember where, but there is one in Connecticut- fire station/ gas station/ deli/ post office/ town hall/ post office.

I got one of the best roast beef sandwiches there I have ever ate. And there was a really neat Mack CF open cab with a Mack L series.

I wish I could remember the name of the place!
