List of fire stations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of notable current and former fire stations, which are also called "fire houses", "fire halls", "engine houses", and other terms. It includes combination buildings, such as city halls or other government buildings that include a fire station. This list is intended to include all historic fire stations which have formally been listed on historic registers, as well as modern ones notable for their architecture or other reasons.

This list is not intended to cover purely administrative fire department buildings. Dedicated fire alarm buildings are not included here, nor are buildings of firefighting water supply systems (such as the Pumping Station No. 2 in San Francisco's system). Note the term "engine houses" may refer to other collections of engines, e.g. for supplying power to factories; these are covered in a separate list of engine houses.

Narrow towers rising above many of these buildings are hose towers, for purpose of cleaning and drying fire hoses.[1][2] But some have fire lookout towers, some have bell towers or clock towers and some have fire drill towers.
