New Fire Station Opened in Wichita

Issue 5 and Volume 83.

New Fire Station Opened in Wichita An attractive, and very well equipped fire station has been placed in service in Wichita, Kans. It was designed and constructed under the supervision of Assistant Chief Doc Wendel, and much credit is also due to Chief H. H. McCall. The house is said to represent the last word in fire engine quarters, both as to efficiency and for the comfort of the men assigned to the station. The building is of joisted brick construction with limestone trimmings. It has many windows so that the various rooms are well ventilated and subjected to plenty of daylight. Two pieces of Ahrens-Fox apparatus are housed in the building. The apparatus, delivered recently, were tested and far exceeded the stipulated requirements. In the photograph, at the right, is the ladder truck, and the pumper is stationed at the left.
