Fire station on Routee 66 gets new name

TULSA, Okla. — Quick Facts:

  • Mayor Bynum declared Tulsa Fire Station 30 as the new Fire Station 66 on Thursday morning.
  • Station 66 on 11th near 145th East Avenue is the only fire station in the city that lies along Route 66.
  • The station had been in service for 45 years before Thursday’s dedication.
  • Tulsa firefighters are the ones who came up with the idea to rename the station. They said they didn’t realize how quickly they’d get support from city and state leaders.
