Indianapolis Fire Station 7 is located just northeast of downtown and has 12 people on duty.
Engine 7 is staffed by four and the four members of Ladder 7 cross-staff Tactical 7, which carries water rescue and technical rescue equipment. The two members of Squad 7 respond on EMS calls. The shift command and the safety officer also responds from the station. Also housed here are two boats and a dive truck.
The response area includes downtown Indianapolis and the Lockerbie Square and St. Joseph neighborhoods and they can find themselves working at any mix of commerical and resdiential high rise buildings, downtown offices, private dwellings and commercial structures. Crews are first-in at emergencies on Interstate 65 and the White River.
The on-duty members live and work out of the second floor, including the kitchen/entertainment area, bunkrooms, training room, locker rooms and officers for the various units that respond from the station.
The Indianapolis Fire Department headquarters is adjacent to Station 7.
