Firehouse, a news and information magazine for the fire service, has featured Lynn Street fire station in its latest edition. In addition to an active station, it houses a museum and memorials.

The articles calls the memorials a tangible appreciation to those who are willing to risk their lives protecting others. “It is a daily reminder within the station environment that is crucial to the community and that the community will never forget those that have sacrificed everything in the performance of the profession,” the magazine states.

The article also details the historical displays in the museum, which include the 1909 American LaFrance horse drawn steam pumper, a call box and ticker-tape system, and an eight-foot-long piece of bent structural steel from the World Trade Center towers.

Philip Fieler, project manager for Stewart-Cooper-Newell Architects, talked about the significance of the the museum and memorials. He told the magazine, “In this day and time, it is so important for public safety departments to have an active relationship with their communities. If a station and its content can foster interaction and educate the public on the work of the Fire Department, and ultimately build trust within the community, that is a special achievement.”

The magazine writes, “In addition to serving as an active station and housing the department’s administration, Station 1 serves as a point of interest within the community in the hope that the public’s first interaction with the department is not in a time of emergency response.”

Fire Chief David Eagle said requests for station tours have greatly increased.
