On March 18, 2005, Engine Company 9, Battalion Chief 3 and EMS 3 took up quarters in their new home. The former Station 9 had been in existence since the birth of the City of Chesapeake in 1963. The old and cramped building could no longer serve the needs of busy fire companies. New Fire Station 9 is considered "state of the art" in design where form followed function. The station is also centrally located in the run district, enabling a better response to service in all directions. The station was dedicated on a special day in the Chesapeake Fire Dept. On March 18, 1996 two of Chesapeake's bravest made the ultimate sacrifice in an auto parts store fire. Fire Station 9 is dedicated to the memory and service of Frank Young and John Hudgins.
