Now here’s the picture taken during Chinese New Year 2007.
The fire station has moved to its new premises. Not exactly sure when the moving date was.

The main front view if you stand right in front of the fire station.

Thanks for visiting. Now you are updated! 🙂
Remember the times during kindergarten or primary school, we get to visit the Fire Station? Drop your comments either here or at the new Forum.

Hmmm did you realise that the postcode has changed? I wonder why it’s not 83000. I emailed Pos Malaysia, got a reply that said they will follow up, but till today (2 weeks later), I still have not gotten a reply.

    Where’s Jalan Timah Sari? Any idea what’s gonna happen to the Old Balai Bomba. I hope it’ll not be another ‘makan place’. But again, the Watchtower may come in handy if the place is turned into a Bistro…..

    Can’t remember much. Is it anywhere near Taman Banang? I remember Supreme Building is next to Taman Banang and opposite it, is the Land Office.

    But Tabung Haji….no idea-leh???

    Can you include an area map of BeePee in your blog. It will surely helps folks like me who had merantau & gone rusty…….

    I felt this site is getting a bit trivial. The postings are mostly about buildings, food etc and nothing much. You definitely need something more than pictures and descriptions of those places. Try to find something more interesting as a topic eg. people/ characters or stories of BP. Something with more soul and humane touch.

    P.s I don’t mean to sound discouraging. I really appreciate your effort and think what you are doing here is great. I just think that BP is so much more than a fire station and the bus station.

    Tabung Haji building, before it was the Immigration Office. The the Immigration Office got relocated to the the building at the roundabout and then to the current Bangunan Gunasama.

    The old Bomba building will still remain in its place in case there is a fire in town, there is still firemen nearby. Maybe just 1 or 2 trucks left.

    Assalamualaikum & Salam Sejahtera,
    Thank You for the ‘story’. I myself is ‘anak Bomba’. Born in BP. Late father was a ‘Fireman’ during the late 50’s in the ‘old’ station and last rank held were ‘Station Fire Officer’ in that station after being transferd to various district fire station within state of Johore. There were nostalgic memories recalled when seeing the old fire station. You know, childhood memories in various fire stations.
