Anaheim Fire Station No. 5 – City of Anaheim
The new Station 5, which became operational Aug. 1, 2018 (with a four-person engine company and two ambulance units), isn’t only pretty, with all the latest bells and whistles. It also will result in faster response times to residents and businesses in north Anaheim, AF&R officials said. The area the station serves gets about 4,000 annual calls for service.
The new Station 5 features a large apparatus bay that can house five to six rigs, and eight individual dorm rooms that include a bed and desk. Most AF&R stations have dorms that several firefighters share. Station 5 also has separate male and female locker rooms and a separate exercise room with a stair-climbing machine, rowing machine, a stationary bike, weights and a TV. Many fire stations only have room for exercise equipment in the apparatus bay. Among the other highlights of Station 5 are a complete laundry facility, a commercial-grade ice machine, a turnout room with 24 separate stalls, a captain’s office, and a dayroom with six plush recliners.
