The map shows the fire station response zones, the location of the station and a weighted graphic showing how busy each company was in relation to others.

RALEIGH – The 1961 American LaFrance of the Raleigh Fire Department has been relocated from Fire Station 9 on Six Forks Road to Fire Station 28 on Forestville Road.

This move allowed all of the antique apparatus to be housed in one location and also allows a space for the 5th Battalion at Fire Station 9.
