On Duty Personnel
In June of 1990 the City of Columbia and Richland County renewed the fire service agreement with a ten-year contract entitled the “Unified Fire Service Agreement.” The agreement called for the County to construct and equip new fire stations and the City to hire and train new firefighters to drive apparatus from the new stations. A new city station was established in a mobile home in Harbison (#16) due to the annexation of the Columbiana Mall area. This temporary station was relocated to a farmhouse and newly constructed metal shed at 131 Lake Murray Boulevard.
On January 4, 1995, a new Station 16 was opened at 131 Lake Murray Boulevard. The shed was transformed into a CPD substation.
