08/30/08 37 W, 1 I - + 14 - 13 New Doors for Station 17

Higher doors have been installed in the bays at Station 17 on Pleasant Valley Road. The doors were raised to allow future accomodation of an aerial apparatus.

Does anyone know…is the aerial in next years budget or a couple years down the road?
I’m assuming another Pierce maybe?

When a ladder company is placed in service, the company is not necessarily going to be given a new apparatus. The latest word on the street; Ladder 16 moving to 17, Ladder 23 moving to 24, and the new “ladder company” going in service at #4. Supposedly one of the reserve aerial devices is going back to full duty, but who knows where.

With all the movement going on, it sure would be nice to adjust the numbering schemes (have Ladders 1 through 8, regardless of “station location”), rather than having to re-label/number everything, again.

Silver’s reallignment seems to make alot of sense, especially when "29" goes to NW Raleigh. ( the city already owns a 17 acre parcel at about Leesville Rd. and "proposed" end of ACC Blvd.) Would really seem logical if the city ever completes ACC Boulevard through to Leesville Rd, making Station 24 response to that area easier. Battalion 4 could go to either 16 or 18 and still have good road access to its district area.

Also, #29 is supposed to be a 2-company house.

If they put a ladder at Station 4, my thoughts and prayers are with the lieutenant that has to deal with the short front pad and small turning radius. Good luck!

Supposedly a shorter truck is going there. That’ll be a good ride to be on if you’re aggressive and if you like to see work….

On that note what apparatus is expected for Raleigh this year?

At last check, only a replacement pumper was approved in the budget: http://www.raleigh-nc.org/portal/server...
