Engine Company Five was originally located on M Street, but relocated to Dent Place in 1940. The first station housed…More horses and was the home to Truck E, which later became Truck 5. The station traded horses for today's three trucks and one medic unit.
The station is staffed round the clock by rotating shifts of seven personnel for Engine 5, and three personnel for Medic 5. The canteen and rehab units are staffed by volunteers from the Friendship Fire Association.
