Central Fire Station is located at 310 Broadway Avenue. This station serves the northern and eastern areas of Hot Springs, including Bath House Row, Magic Springs, and the Hot Springs Convention Center. It was built in 1996 to replace the old Central fire Station at 210 Opera Street, which was built in 1963 (now the location of the City’s Information Systems, Parks & Trails, Sports Recreation, Public Information and Public Works departments). Central Station is the department’s headquarters and is where the Fire Chief, Fire Prevention Bureau, and Training Division have their offices. It houses a command vehicle (121), a pumper (Engine 1), and a ladder truck (Truck 5). The ladder truck is a tiller design, wherein the chassis is a tractor trailer with a steerable rear axle, providing greater maneuverability on the city’s streets.
