05/31/12 191 W - + 7 - 1 Car 20 > Station 1


Time to update our Raleigh Fire Department unit rosters. Effective tomorrow, June 1, the fire investigation unit (Car 20) will move from Station 9 to Station 1. Also moving is Car 21, the secondary / reserve unit, and the supporting personnel from Engine 9. They'll be swapped with personnel from Engine 1. The fire investigation unit will utilize newly vacated and newly expanded office space and living areas at Station 1 and around the corner at Fire Administration.

Welcome back to the big house to the investigators. The "arson squad" started at Station 1 and was moved to Station 9 by June 3, 2000. (Exact date to be determined.) They utilized space previously occupied by the Division Chief, who moved to Station 8 in December 2005. As for who else has been housed at Station 9 over the decades...
