05/02/09 112 W, 1 I - + 11 - 5 Norfolk Naval Station

Military bases, naval stations, and government facilities abound in the Hampton Roads area. Army, Navy, NASA, you name it. Though closed to visitors, the area's premiere attraction-- Norfolk Naval Station-- can be toured by bus. The 45-minute guided tour of the world's largest naval base passes a pair of fire stations. Here's a window shot of what appeared to be a combination station, with structural apparatus in the front, and airport crash trucks in the rear. We also passed an air-side station, some several hundred yards away from the road. Didn't get a good shot of that one.

“Though closed to visitors, the area’s premiere attraction— Norfolk Naval Station— can be toured by bus.”

Although this may be true to the “general public”, if you have a relative on base you might(stressing might) be able to get a better tour of the base.

Hey, that’s my station! When was this taken?

We took the bus tour a week ago Friday, the noon run. How many base fire stations are there, BTW?
