03/27/14 244 W, 4 I - + 10 - 12 Three Old Photos of Wake County EMS

For your Thursday enjoyment, these three old photos of Wake County EMS were added this morning to the History of Wake County EMS Facebook page. (Also see my research project related to that topic: www.legeros.com/history/ems.) They were scanned by David Raynor, and show Station 1 in either 1987 or 1988, a Suburban and EMS 8 at a fire scene, and a unit arriving at Sullivan Hall at NCSU. Click to enlarge:

Wait, you say, what's that old building in the first photo? The one that looks like an ancient gas station with ambulances parked outside? That's the original EMS Station 1 at 201 W. Martin Street. Built in 1925, it served as the headquarters for Wake County EMS (both as ambulance station and administrative offices) from 1976 to 1991. Some notes, from my history documents from the above link:
