05/28/10 91 W, 1 I - + 11 - 10 Charlotte Fire Station 40 Opens

Forty, count 'em, forty fire stations! As their Facebook posting announced this week, Charlotte Fire Station 40 opened on Monday. The nearly 12,000 square-foot facility is located in northeast Charlotte at 9720 Harrisburg Road. The station was added to address service level needs due to annexations. Engine 40 was placed in service in July 2009, and was temporarily housed at Station 34. It has responded to 1,198 calls since then. Beginning July 3, Ladder 40 will be placed in service. Information on a public open house and dedication ceremony is forthcoming.

Station 41 is open now in temporary facility at the airport. The new station 41 should be open sometime in June last I heard. I believe they just broke ground on Station 42 near Eastland Mall.
