Description

Maltonfdsymbol2.jpg
Stembridge Crescent Fire Station is a fire station located in the very southeast corner of the suburb of Dulston and sits on the very eastern edge of Malton. Opened in 1928, the fire station served to replace the aging Freeborn Crescent Fire Station which was closed down soon afterwards. It was not long after, in 1929, that a dark chapter was written for Stembridge Crescent's history, as the station suffered its first fatalities in the line of duty during this year. While responding to a major fire call, Squad 1 and Engine 2 crashed into each other at a busy intersection resulting in the deaths of 2 firemen.

The fire department struggled through the 1930s to bring itself up to national standards. New innovations were tried such as gas masks. For a brief period during the 1940s Malton council attempted to utilize the fire station's men for a variety of tasks within Dulston including the maintenance of sprinkler systems in both McNally Park and MacKlin Park, or even patrolling with police officers as hybrid firemen-cops. Eventually these ideas, along with the councilors who suggested them, passed from office and the firemen were allowed to focus on their real duty.

In 1959, the first high-rise fire took place at Waddington Towers, which led to many innovations in how fires of that nature should be combated. The fact that Waddington Towers still stands shows the tenacity of Dulston's fire crews that day.

During the 1980s the new Computer Aided Dispatch System was initiated and the first female firefighter joined the crew at Stembridge Crescent Fire Station. The year 1985 was raised as a milestone year banner at the station as the Malton 9-1-1 system went into effect, ambulances from Dulston's three hospitals were put into service, labor/management started productivity agreement and the Health and Fitness Center was dedicated. All looked towards a bright future for Dulston until the "Malton Incident" occurred. These days survivors staying at Blaise General Hospital often frequent the station and provide medical aid to any survivors staying there.

While the fire station was abandoned by the city and its doors sealed as part of the evacuation plan, there have been signs that perhaps members of the illustrious Malton Fire Department have returned to the station in hopes of managing more than just fires within the suburb. Currently Archangel Michael, a Fire Marshal with the MFD, has been charged with the task of organizing firefighter resistance within Dulston. He now commands an area once watched over by such Captains as Grifflik and Agent Heroic.

Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher would often visit Stembridge Crescent Fire Station while making his rounds from Blaise General Hospital, healing any injured survivors he found here. After the unfortunate events that led to the hospital being overrun in late-January 2006 no one has spotted Caleb in the area and it is believed he has yet to return.

Barricade Policy

This building must never be more than Very Strongly (VS+2) barricaded. This barricade level has been set forth in the Dulston Optimal Defense Diagram, a strategic barricade policy that is enforced by all member groups of the Dulston Alliance. This building's purpose is to serve as an access point for all survivors and a safehouse for inexperienced survivors who do not possess the Free Running skill. Visitors are requested to never barricade beyond Very Strongly unless the building is currently under siege from 5 or more zombies. Note that any survivors associated with the Dulston Alliance have the right to lower the barricades back to Very Strongly if they discover them raised higher without just cause.
