08/17/10 131 W, 1 I - + 7 - 11 Charlotte's Second Airport Fire Station

It's a rare occasion that a new airport fire station opens, and Charlotte Fire Station 41 was placed in service last month at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. As this News 14 story reported, it houses seven Charlotte Fire Department members and three North Carolina Air National Guard (NCANG) members. It's located off West Boulevard, near the newly opened third parallel runway.

Says this CFD stations page, the companies operating are Blaze 41, Blaze 42, and Blaze 43. Google finds a little more information. The 20,300 square-foot facility is the first LEED facility on airport grounds, and was built with $7.2 million of DoD funds through the NCANG.

Fire Station 17, the other one at the airport, is located at 5308 Morris Field Road. The companies there are Engine 17, Blaze 1, Blaze 2, Blaze 5, Blaze 7, and Battalion 8.
