03/30/13 141 W, 2 I - + 8 - 6 Interactive Map of Raleigh Fire Department Response Areas

Another new map and data set has been added to the city's Open Raleigh portal, this one interactively mapping the fire department's response areas. That is, the engine company first-due territories. Click and zoom and see exactly where each engine goes or doesn't go! Now, will they add maps for the ladder companies, or others?! Among the map's functions controls that allow switching between three different mapping programs, and controlling the percentages of the layers displayed. See this prior posting on this subject.


From here, we can enhance my fire department map with the response areas. Created by using screen captures, then adding as a layer over the existing map. Click to enlarge:

I just have to ask because I haven’t seen it explained anywhere. Why is there not a Station 13?

I figured it was because engine 13 is quartered downtown with engine 1 if I remember correctly. Although here in fayetteville there is not a station 13 in the city, county station 13 is considered engine 13 in the city CAD due to a city contract. There also is not a city station 16 here as it is quartered downtown with engine 1,

Mike, what is the lower speck of Raleigh that is part of Engine 2 or Engine 20 response area?

In Fayetteville station 16 is on the books, they just keep pushing it back.

Fun fact about the speck that is Lake Wheeler: It’s the only area that is not in the city limits, but Raleigh FD/PD still respond to. It’s odd to me, because Raleigh owns plenty of land outside the city limits, but is not the primary responders to those other properties. I don’t know why they treat Lake Wheeler differently.

Burns, what’s the story on the Explorers that RPD is receiving!? How will they be equipped? Standard markings!?
Legeros - 04/07/13 - 10:08

Yes, they’ll have standard markings and a rear seat cage, as well as all the standard police car equipment. We already have one, and it is assigned to a district. We’ll also be getting some Dodge Chargers. We have one or two Chargers already, but they’re unmarked. So, I’m curious to see what an RPD Charger looks like marked up.
