11/28/09 153 W, 1 I - + 13 - 19 Six Forks Fire Department, Circa 1974

Don't believe I have blogged about nor shown this photo before, which comes courtesy of the Raleigh-Wake Emergency Communications Center. The image shows the Six Forks Fire Department around 1974. That's the year they moved from their three-bay station at 5305 Six Forks Road (now EMS Station 3) to 1431 Lynn Road (now Bay Leaf Station 3 slash Six Forks EMS Station 1). The three-bay building measured 50 by 50 feet, and the siren was left at its prior location on Six Forks Road, near Northclift Drive. (It would be moved to outside the station a couple years later, as the stories have been told to me.) This building has been renovated four or five times, with added bays on either side of the original three, added bays in the rear, demolition of the added bays in the rear, and construction of a two-story structure in the rear.

As it happens, these photos were posted a couple years ago, http://legeros.com/ralwake/photos/2007-0..

They’re from slides that ECC staff found. Good stuff.
