Engine #3 in New Jersey Av NW [#16]
On May 4th we recognise and honour all the firefighters that dedicate themselves to protect the community. Whether you hear the sirens, see the red cars rushing through the streets or live next to a red-door station like this one, the presence of the Fire Department in DC is constant.
Arguably the oldest fire station in the city, Engine No 3 on New Jersey Av NW has been protecting the Capitol and Union Station for 100 years. It’s a beautiful landmark (and also a museum!).
