Today we are going where few guests ever get to venture – inside fire station #1 for the Reedy Creek Fire Department. Located between EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios it sees many calls throughout the day.
Reedy Creek Emergency Services provides fire protection and emergency medical services to everyone inside the 45.6 square miles of the Reedy Creek Improvement District, not to mention the property and land. The area includes four theme parks, two water parks, a sports complex, entertainment district, 167 miles of roadway, 67 miles of waterways, plus 40,000 hotel rooms and 140,000 plus guests daily.

Of course the station has a dalmatian theme. Hopefully you’ll never need the services of the Reedy Creek Fire Department, but it’s good to know they’re there if you do.
