Dedication Ceremony to be Held for the City of Raleigh’s Newest and Largest Fire Station
On Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 1 p.m. the City will hold a dedication ceremony for the new Fire Station 12 in southeast Raleigh.
Chief John McGrath, Mayor Nancy McFarlane and Council Member Corey Branch will make brief remarks prior to a station tour.
The City of Raleigh’s newest fire station features a smart design and is strategically located at 4306 Poole Road. It was built a mile east of its legacy location. The new location will allow for better response times in a growing area of the City.
At more than 18,000 square feet, the new facility is the largest of Raleigh’s 29 fire stations. The added space allows for more firefighters and firefighting equipment to be stationed in that section of southeastern Raleigh. The larger fire station also includes a raised platform area that allows firefighters to conduct ladder, rescue, and other drills indoors.
