Anyone know what Stations were closed and what station is what number now under the operating agreement with Waterford ? Are they treating it as one big 8 station department or ??

The old Pontiac stations 1, 4*, and 6 are still open. With the merger, they've rolled everything into an eight station department, and started dispatching the old Pontiac stations via tone out on their legacy VHF frequency, which is patched to Open Sky.

The stations were renumbered as:
  • PFD Station 6 is now Waterford Sta 6: E-6
  • PFD Station 1 is now Waterford Sta 7: E-7, L-7, Captain 1
  • PFD Station 4 is now Waterford Sta 8*: E-8
*-I've not heard station 8 go on a run alone yet to be sure, but I'm pretty sure that it's the old station 4, and not the old station 2 on South Blvd. Old station 5 on Huron St is definitely closed.

I knew alot of great Firefighters that worked there when i was still in that area, I am sad because all the history of the department is gone.
Seems like coverage is thin now down in the south end now.
