Lawrence made some significant changes earlier this year. Engine 5 at Central House was decommissioned when a rescue pumper went in to service as Squad 1 (formerly Rescue Co. 1). This resulted in the firehouse at 311 Ames Street being reopened after being vacant for many years. The apparatus and personnel from Engine 5 were reassigned here, allowing Engine Co. 8 to be resurrected.
