05/13/12 165 W, 2 I - + 6 - 6 Temporary Fire Stations

Here's Station 12 on Ogeechee Road in Savannah, one of three temporary stations operating on the far west and south sides of the city. We photographed all three while visiting the historic city last week. See those photos. (Yeah, you're pretty much crazy person if spend your vacation cruising the perimeter of a place like Savannah, instead of spending every last moment downtown. We don't even need Mrs. Blogger to comment on that one...)

Locally, we've seen a number of temporary fire stations around Raleigh and Wake County. In the Capital City, Engine 8 occupied a rented house on Method Road from 1960 to 1963. In Holly Springs, the municipal fire department's early locations included a warehouse circa 1995. Their Station 2 is currently operating in a trailer on Avent Ferry Road, while their new building is completed on the same site. What other temporary stations have served or are serving around here/this region?
