Station seven

Station 7 is located on Madison's west side. It is staffed daily with ten firefighters who work 24 hour shifts. Station 7 houses Engine Company 7, Ladder 7, and Medic 7. The firehouse was built in 1997 to accommodate Madison's development to the west and replaced the older firehouse located on Raymond Road. Station 7 added the City's 8th ambulance in April, 2010, and became a double company when it added Ladder 7 in November of that year.

Station 7 also houses one of the State of Wisconsin's Regional Hazmat Response Teams. Firefighters stationed at Station 7 are highly trained Hazardous Materials Technicians who will respond throughout the State to aid in chemical spill mitigation and cleanup. All members are also trained in Weapons of Mass Destruction response.

Fire Station 7 Logo Many stations develop a specific identity over time, and develop station logos that members of the crew display with pride. The crew at Station #7 has chosen a whimsical representation of their HAZMAT activities in the form of a masked skunk.

The skunk relates to the noxious fumes and "smelly" chemicals the crew deals with, though they are quick to remind everyone that if you are close enough to smell the product, you are too close and in the "hot" zone.

The original artwork was done by C shift crew member Matt Powers.
