KraftWork – Fire Station

with 4 comments

 

In North America, Jamestown, Virginia was virtually destroyed in a fire in January, 1608. There were no full time paid firefighters in America until 1850. Even after the formation of paid fire companies in the United States, there were disagreements and often fights over territory. New York City companies were famous for sending runners out to fires with a large barrel to cover the hydrant closest to the fire in advance of the engines.  Often fights would break out between the runners and even the responding fire companies for the right to fight the fire and receive the insurance money that would be paid to the company that fought it.

 

Quite a difference in modern times;  the Fire Department of New York employs approximately 10,200 uniformed firefighters and over 3,940 uniformed EMTs, paramedics, and Fire Inspectors and the department serves more than 8 million residents within a 320 square mile area.  The FDNY’s motto is “New York’s Bravest” and the same could be said of many modern day city fire departments.

 

 

The pictures show KraftWork‘s tribute to firefighters – the Firehouse –  and it’s available at the 5th Anniversary round of FaMESHed which runs to the end of the month.

 

There’s 2 versions in the pack:-

KraftWork Central Fire Station (all) – LI 293 – copy/modify
KraftWork Central Fire Station (only main building) – LI 216 – copy/modify

The main building has two floors, scripted doors at the front and a working side door entrance.  It’s a beautifully observed, highly detailed building and would suit city sims and roleplay areas.

 

Cheers, m’dears 🙂
