05/31/09 126 W, 1 I - + 17 - 15 Fire Station Open House and Birthday Party, Saturday, June 27

Raleigh's oldest active fire station celebrates its 60th birthday on Saturday, June 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Fire Station 6 is located at 2601 Fairview Road, at the intersection of Oberlin Road. Food will be provided, and fire apparatus will be displayed for children of all ages. The 1950 Mack pumper will be present, which served as Engine 6 for twenty-five years. Visitors will also see fire education displays and historical materials. Housed in a nearby rented building from 1943 to 1948, the firefighters of Engine Company 6 moved into their new quarters on June 25, 1949. The “corner fire station” has also housed a ladder company, a rescue squad, and a Battalion Chief over the years. Read more history of Station 6.

NOW that’s what I like to see!!! Are any 60th anniversary t-shirts being made up?

Hey Mike,

On your Station 6 history page, the link to “view plaque” takes you to the plaque for Station 11 instead of Station 6. Just thought you would like to know :)
