Magnolia celebrated the re-opening of Fire Station 41 this weekend, giving lots of little firefighters a chance to check out the equipment.

Station 41, located on 34th Ave West, houses four firefighters who respond to over 900 emergency calls each year.  The station got a big facelift that increased the building size from 3,967 square feet to 6,067 square feet.

It now has more room for equipment and space to operate, improving station operations. The building was strengthened to meet the seismic code and all new mechanical and electrical systems were installed.  The remodel was paid for by the 2003 $167 million Fire Levy.

Station 41 was built in 1936 and is designated as a landmark by the Landmarks Preservation Board. The remodel maintained the look of the building while adding upgrades that include a large apparatus door.  The old bi-fold doors were re-used in the building.

    A big thank you to the Magnolia community who came to the dedication and toured the new fire house. Speaking for all the fire fighters stationed at Firehouse 41, we feel we have the most supportive and involved clientele in all of Seattle. Visiting fire fighters working the day with us often comment how lucky we are to have such a wonderful community to serve. And now with one of the nicest little fire stations in the city, we may see more fire fighters seeking transfers to Station 41! Thank you for creating the best work environment a fire fighter could wish for…..

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
