STATION 6:  WESTFIELD AVENUE

Station 6 is a 3-bay 1-story firehouse in the first battalion, located at 6 Westfield Avenue.  The firehouse rear property line butts up against the former firehouse property on Route 35 North.  The new firehouse replaces the old firehouse, which was purchased by the state to widen the Route 35/ Thunder Road interchange.  This firehouse officially opened on Sunday, August 6, 2011 at 12 noon.  The firehouse has a modern eat-in kitchen, day room, dormitory with lavatories and a separate shower room.  Engine 6 and Haz Mat are assigned to Station 6, along with Quick Attack 6.  The former Station 6 was reopened on July 19, 2003, replacing the prior firehouse destroyed by fire, and is slated to be raised within the next few weeks..  The Lego Twp FD Firefighters' Memorial has been built adjacent to Station 6, on the Thunder Road side of the firehouse.  The Memorial was dedicated on October 19, 2003, the National Fallen Firefighters' Day..
