This week we had an amazing opportunity to visit Dallas Fire Station #11. Captain prepared a delicious meal that had everyone asking for more–we were so spoiled! After our dinner, we were given a tour of the building which is the oldest working fire station in Dallas. Built in 1909, the structure has very rare features and has been designated as a historical landmark.
“Considered the first “suburban” fire station in Dallas, #11…was built as a sister station to Station #5 or “Old Tige,” built at the turn of the century across from the Fair Park and now housing the Dallas Firefighters Museum. These two stations are the last of their kind in Dallas,” Dallas Fire Rescue.
At the end of the tour, we even had a chance to slide down the fire poles! It was quite a night and we are so thankful for the opportunity to spend time and get to know the people who protect and serve our community so well.
