Stevenson Joins Community-Wide Effort to Renovate Baltimore’s Aging Firehouses

June 13, 2014 7 AM

Stevenson University is among the more than a dozen Baltimore-based organizations and philanthropists that have pledged their support to help fund renovations for some of Baltimore’s oldest firehouses.

Each organization will support the revamp of the firehouse’s kitchens, a crucial space within the firehouse.

“The kitchen is a meeting place,” Fire Chief Niles R. Ford told The Baltimore Sun. “It’s a place to break bread and solve the world’s problems. It’s where you share war stories, mentoring and counseling. It’s where you become brothers and sisters.”

For the project, Stevenson will partner with Squad 54, located at 5821 Belair Road. The station services an area in which many Stevenson students and their families reside.
