BOSTON FIRE STATIONS
The Boston Fire Department is one of the oldest and most historic.
Among its fire houses is the iconic Back Bay fire station on Engine 33 and Ladder 15
at 941 Boylston St. The station once also housed  Boston Police Station 16.
This historic station is first due to the landmark Prudential building and
Fenway Park, home of the 2018 World Champion Boston Red Sox.

BOSTON FIRE DEPARTMENT
Paid Fire Department Established in 1678 - First in the Nation.
Today protects about 47 square miles and a population of about 636,000.
The department operates 34 Fire Stations.
There are 33 Engines - 20 Ladders - 2 Rescues
3 Fireboats - Numerous Special Units
The city is divided into 2 Divisions

While the New England Patriots do not actually play within the city,
Boston is definitely home to many Patriots, old and new.
