Redstone Arsenal's Fire Station #1 was dedicated Thursday to the memory of a NASA engineer killed during a high-speed police chase last May.
In a ceremony on post this morning, the station was named in honor of Darren Spurlock.
Spurlock, 39, was killed on Arsenal grounds May 30 when the car he was driving was struck by a vehicle being pursued by police.
Speaking during the ceremony were Marshall Space Flight Center Director Dave King, Redstone Commanding General James Myles, and Spurlock's wife Kelly.
Prior to the crash Spurlock had been with NASA for only a few weeks.
Before that he had spent 12 years as a contractor with Boeing.
