Long Description:
The station is located next door to a city library and is often visited by children and their parents walking by. Residents affectionately refer to it as the "Little Firehall".

Two of the oldest antique rigs in the city sit in the garden area in front of Station No. 5. The two steel-wheeled hose reels were used to carry hoses to fire calls in Calgary's earlier days.

Built in 1952, this is the oldest fire hall still in service in The City of Calgary.
