SAVE OUR STATION!

Atlanta's Oldest Fire Station is on the Chopping Block


Fire Station 19 is Atlanta's oldest continuously operating fire station.  Located in the heart of the Historic Virginia Highland neighborhood, the station has been a neighborhood landmark for more than 90 years.

The City of Atlanta is scheduled to eliminate the station in 2016 unless the community can raise funds to help renovate it.  This decision has not been announced publicly, but key constituents in the neighborhood are very concerned about the possible loss of this historic resource that is central to our safety and community life.

No. 19's building is in good structural condition and needs basic repairs.  A neighborhood committee--including architects, historians, preservationists, community leaders and contractors--has made recommendations to renovate and update the station in partnership with the Atlanta Fire Department and the City of Atlanta.

Saving the station requires community support.  To date, nearly $80,000 has been raised.  We need an additional $220,000 to keep No. 19 operating in a safe and efficient manner for another 50 years.  Our goal is to raised those funds by December 2015.
