03/25/13 61 W, 1 I - + 3 - 3 Building The Support Services Center - February 2004

Found in my files, early construction on the Raleigh Fire Department's Support Services Center at the city's heavy equipment depot on New Bern Avenue. That facility was so long-overdue it wasn't funny. They'd been looking for larger space, and particularly a larger shop, for over ten years. Click once or twice to enlarge:

So up until moving into the new shop did R.F.D fleet services operate out of the shop behind station 2?

Thanks for the answer Mike. It is hard to believe that a City the size of Raleigh managed to operate it’s maintenance and services in such tight quarters. Keep up the good work RFD, its amazing to see the great changes happening in our capital city!

Sad part is, they are already busting at the seams again and are in desperate need of upgrading again. I suppose that is the price of progress, but a good problem to have. Kudos to the guys at the shop keeping those rigs rolling!
