07/04/10 147 W, 4 I - + 5 - 9 New Fire Stations in Wrightsville Beach and Southport

The holiday blog blitz continues with photos of new fire stations in Wrightsville Beach and Southport. The former is part of a $6.1 million, 26,000 square-foot public safety building, and appears ready for occupation. Check out those "stoplights" in the bay, which we've seen locally in Apex Fire Station 4. There's also a genuine fire pole in the thing. Here's a Star-News story about the recent ribbon cutting.

The Southport fire station appears to be few more weeks away from completion. Big honkin' building, at that. Believe the old station gets turned over to the rescue squad, which share the current structure. Or a part of same. More photos to be posted later. The station also includes a second outdoor building to display the town's antique fire engine! How cool is that? Love the accordion-style apparatus doors, also.
