March 1st, 1964, the Bridgeport FD moved four engine companies among existing firehouses when it closed Engine 1's John Street house.
Engine 1 moved to HQ on Middle St, displacing Engine 5
Engine 5 moved to lower Madison Ave, displacing Engine 4
Engine 4 moved to Maplewood St, displacing Engine 9
and in this game of musical firehouses,
Engine 9 lost their firehouse and moved in with Engine 16 on upper Madison Ave. 9 was disbanded in 1967.
A very unique redeployment. I wonder if the original intent was to ultimately replace 16 with 9?
