This area has greatly expanded within the last few years. Need to have Engine Company 1 re-organized for this area,

Grump is right. The newly developed Seaport District is growing rapidly. There is a push to build a new firehouse in the neighborhood. The area had declined with the loss of manufacturing and harbor activity in the 1960s and 1970s. Converted warehouses and new construction provide upscale housing, restaurants and nightlife.



The closed firehouse at 344 Congress Street used to protect the area with E 38, E 39 (double company) and L 18. The former firehouse has been home to the Boston Sparks since 1983, a terrific volunteer organization supporting BFD. They run rehab apparatus from quarters and administer the Boston Fire Museum at that location - a great place to visit in Boston.

This was a BFD firehouse location study completed in 1956. BFD "Districts" are FDNY "Battalions".

While I don't disagree with a new firehouse I doubt you'll see one. If FDNY can't get a new firehouse in Hudson Yards it's a slim chance Boston will get one in the seaport district. Engine 10, Tower Ladder 3 and Rescue 1 on Purchase Street are very close to the area as well as Engine 39 and Ladder 18 are pretty much a straight shot down D Street. Also Engine 2 and Ladder 19 are a bit further away.
