Station No. 55

Fire station #55 opened February 1, 1966. It has 2 full bays and 1/2 bay and contains 8,735 square feet. The first alarm district of #55 is mostly residential. It is comprised of hundreds of acres of apartments.

Located beside a park, Station #55 has some lovely rolling scenery-landscape which caused some heartache for crews when their brand-new red engine rolled out of the station, across the street and into a creek. This 1984 incident, known as "The Call of the Wild" is the station's most famous-or infamous-run. The engine was dubbed the "Ditch Witch." As a result of the station slope, #55 uses unusually high chock blocks to prevent apparatus from escaping.
