The Columbus Division of Fire is nearly 200 years old, with 35 stations covering the city. Over the department’s long history, some of those stations have garnered interesting nicknames. This led one WOSU reader to ask Curious Cbus “How did the Columbus fire stations such as the ‘River Rats’ each get their unique names?” As it happens, a fire station getting a nickname or adopting a mascot is a fairly common practice across the country, and Columbus is no exception.
