HR Hobbs Station/ Station 4


After the sudden death of H.R. Hobbs in 1967, E. R. Stacey took over as Chief. In this time, Chief Stacey opened a fourth fire station for the Department on King Street East and it was named H.R. Hobbs Station in honour of Chief Hobbs.  Chief Stacey expanded the department’s staff by 24 men. By 1970, the total number of employees was 159. In the same year under Chief Stacey’s term, Wm. Tweedie became the Oshawa Fire Department’s first Training Office.
