Boston (MA) Fire Department Celebrates First New Station in 30+ Years

It has three bays, a classroom, roof training spaces, a fitness room, and 14 bunk beds.

The ceremonial ribbon was recently cut to open the $23.5 million new home of the Boston (MA) Fire Department Engine 42, Rescue 2, District 9 at Columbus Avenue and Bragdon Street in Roxbury (MA), reports universalhub.com. It’s Boston’s first new firehouse in more than 30 years.

The new, 2.5-floor station includes a ventilation system designed to keep carcinogens from reaching the second floor; it replaces a station built in 1952. The facility has 23,000 square feet of space, compared to 6,000 in the old building, the report says.

It has three bays, a classroom, roof training spaces, a fitness room, and 14 bunk beds. More information on the new station can be found here.
