History of Engine 52 & Ladder 31
Detroit Engine 52 was organized in 1926 at a new station at 5029 Manistique St. This station was one of 15 built in the 1920’s, it was also one of the 16 Engine's added to the Detroit fleet in the 20’s. Originally this was a single engine station similar to the picture of Engine 56. In 1942 during WWII while Detroit was producing some famous vehicles for the military, Ladder 31 was organized with Engine 52 and an addition for the ladder was built on to the station. The 1926 station is still an active station with both Engine 52 and Ladder 31. Today Engine 52 is running a 2017 Ferrara Cinder 1500/500 engine. Detroit received 8 of these in 2017. - Joe O'Brien
