06/24/13 196 W, 2 I - + 3 - 6 Winston-Salem Opens Station 19

The city of Winston-Salem recently opened Fire Station 19 at 4430 Glenn Hi Road, on the far east/southeast side of time. The station cost $2.6M, of which about $2M was funded through a Homeland Security grant. Looks like a well-sized, three-bay two-bay and probably double-deep station. Engine 19 was already in service, and housed at nearby Beeson Crossroads Fire Department at 1105 Old Salem Road in (or addressed as) Kernerville. They're 2.4 miles apart, says Google Maps. From this WSFD page, Engine 19 is a 2004 Sutphen 75-foot quint. Looks like it's been in service since 2010. FireNews.net has posted the below reader photo from Ray Lacy.

The ribbon-cutting was on May 29, reports this Winston-Salem Journal story. The city has nineteen fire stations, though this one is the eighteenth. See them mapped via FDmaps.com. They're numbered from one to twelve and from fourteen to twenty. (No thirteen fire station, like Raleigh.) Next quesiton, how many other departments have a Station 19? The Carolinas Fire Page North Carolina fire station lists answers that one: Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro, and Raleigh. Plus several that are numbered as part of county numbering schemes.
