07/29/09 113 W, 1 I - + 9 - 16 Wake Forest Fire Station 3 in Service

Wake Forest's third fire station was placed in service on Monday, July 27, at about 3:00 p.m. Located at 1412 Forestville Road, the facility houses Engine 3 and Brush 3. The engine company was previously responding from Station 2 on Ligon Mill Road. Before that, they were stayed at Station 1 on E. Elm Avenue. Before then, they were utilizing a construction trailer. Lee Wilson has posted photographs, from a visit yesterday. Also, Engine 3 is no longer named Pumper 3. Wake Forest Fire Department has renamed Pumper 1, Pumper 2, and Pumper 3 as Engine 1, Engine 2, and Engine 3. WFFD last renamed all of their units about a year ago, which we blogged about.

I agree, VERY nice station! Just one question, is it required to have the ever-comfortable This End Up type of furniture in fire stations? Oh well, I suppose it’ll keep the FFs from falling asleep!!
