A new fire station was opened at Dallas, Tex., on August 1, a motor combination hose and pumper being transferred to the new house. The building is roomy, with plenty of light and air, and can accommodate in addition to the truck now in service a ladder and a chemical truck when the city is ready to install them. The second floor of the station is given over to sleeping quarters for the firemen. In the rear of the sleeping quarters are showers and baths with hot and cold water, and a lockerroom containing twenty-three lockers for the firemen.
