On May 1st, 2021 Denver Fire Department held a celebration for the 90th Anniversary of Station 3, 2500 N. Washington St. in Five Points. Chief Desmond Fulton hosted the event with Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, the Executive Director of the Department of Public Safety Murphy Robinson, and the neighborhood of Five Points. The event included an open house, station tours, stories, and Engine 3 on display (The Pride of the Points). Denver Fire Station 3 opened on April 30th, 1931 and is the oldest operating fire station that continually serves Denver residents every day. Located in the heart of the historic Five-Points neighborhood, when it opened Station 3 was staffed with African American firefighters, until the department started to desegregate in 1957. The firehouse is still embraced by the neighborhood and the community, while it continues to be a proud fixture of the Fire Department and the entire City and County of Denver.
