Those funny flags on the roof of Station 9? That's construction of a green roof at the North Hills fire station. Other sustainability projects at Raleigh fire stations include solar-powered water heating systems and cisterns for harvesting rainwater. The city recently received federal stimulus funding to install addition more rain systems, as this Raleigh Public Record article notes. Also, Engine 9 recently received their old new pumper. The 2008 Pierce Enforcer was damaged in an accident on December 17, 2008. It was returned to service on June 27, 2009. More about Raleigh engines.
