Ludwell Lane Fire Station, a fire-damaged metal-and-glass building surrounded by burnt-out cars.



Ludwell Lane Fire Station is a fire station located in the suburb of Pescodside. Ludwell Lane was opened in 2005 with much fanfare from local residents and was to act as a replacement for the aging Headland Street Fire Station, which was slated for retirement. Of course both of these events were abruptly postponed due to the "Malton Incident". Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, was quoted as once having said, "Five fire stations? If only Malton were swarming with fires, not zombies, then Pescodside would have been one of the safest suburbs."

The Malton Fire Department has claimed Ludwell Lane Fire Station. Members of the District 3 Malton Emergency Medical Services (MEMS) may also be stationed here.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Very Strongly (VS+2) barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the barricade plan set forth by the Burchell Arms Regulars, who routinely monitor the barricade level for this building. This building is meant to serve as a shelter for Malton's inexperienced survivors and entry point into other nearby fortified buildings.

Survivors who find the building's barricades below their assigned level are asked to assist in raising them back up in order to help ensure the safety of all the survivors staying inside the building. Any survivor found raising or lowering the barricades may be directly "put to the question" by any member of the B.A.R. present at that time. If this happens the accused survivor is required to present a valid reason for their actions or be labeled a zombie spy/death cultist and be judged accordingly.

Survivors are reminded that should any member of the B.A.R find the barricades raised higher that Very Strongly without any apparent danger to the building or area they have the authority to lower the barricades back down to Very Strongly in order to restore access to the building from the outside.

It should be noted that, as the fire station, this building is under the management of the Malton Fire Department and therefore its barricade policy can be reset by them as the need arises. Hopefully this should not be in conflict with B.A.R policy.
