    The pic above looks like the "super station" in the City of Baltimore, Md. That's a LARGE house.

      And one from my area maybe one of the smallest...(its not used anymore).

      That is Steadman Station, it is one big house. The tower is not part of the station though, it is now an art gallery.

      These are all the toys they have there. http://www.bcfdrescueone.com/steadmanwagons.htm

          They must have some pretty darn long firepoles to get down to the bays from the Chief's top floor office!!!

            If we are counting the bays...

            In the world: 10 bays isn't much... Our local full time station has something like 18 bays, over 20 vehicles, a bunch of hookload containers and a helicopter. A lot of those vehicles are utility vehicles, staffing won't fill all seats: battalion, around 6 firemen, helicopter crew and medical crew. That's far from the biggest station as far as bays go.

            For a real one, i think the Feuerwache 1 & BKRZ / Eckenheim in Frankfurt, Germany is very large, just look at this video: http://www.rescue911.de/details.php?...4c0e660b68ce90
            You can see gates numbering 58...60 behinde the glass doors of the first gates and i don't think it stops there either, i have no real numbers.

                Here in Omaha our Central Station has 18 guys stationed here. 2 engines, 1 aerial, 1 Battalion chief, 1 shift supervisor, and 2 med units all fully staffed. I've heard it's one of the bigger stations around but haven't ever got any confirmation on that. It was built back in the 1960's, and originally had 30 on duty guys!
