This station is home to Philadelphia Engine 50, Ladder 12, Battalion 8 and Medic 22.

This classic-looking firehouse in North Philadelphia was built in 1901 and is is one of Philadelphia's oldest active firehouses.

The companies here have long been known across the city for the heavy fire duty encountered in the neighborhood, and have consistently been ranked as some of the busiest companies across the city.
