Welcome to Melvindale! City of the Week is here to be your tour guides.
Engine House #5! Back in 2013, Dearborn’s Fire Department drew Melvindale’s stand alone fire house into their fold. Melvindale’s Fire Department established in 1946 and built this building in 1977.
This is a picture of the first mechanized fire truck in Downriver. For years it was kept at Engine House #5.
Jarrod Ormanian has been with Melvindale’s Fire Department for 22 years! He helped us out tremendously with our history lesson.

Doni loves Pokémon.... so does Justin Dunne. He has a Covid Pokémon tattoo.
