Old Kent Road fire station reopened last month after an 18-month closure while the station was rebuilt.
The fire station reopened on Tuesday 24 March whilst the 'Bermondsey bomb' drama was at its height.
Dockhead fire station is well known as a filming location for the London's Burning TV drama currently being repeated on London Live.
The London Fire Brigade's Southwark borough commander Simon Tuhill said: "This brand new fire station is good news for the local community.
"The previous Old Kent Road station no longer met the demands of a modern fire and rescue service.
"The new station will provide us with facilities fit for the 21st century and reinforces our commitment to providing the best possible service to Londoners."
The new station features a larger appliance bay, a four storey training tower, drill yard and an area for road traffic collision training.
It also houses a station office, lecture and quiet study rooms and a kitchen and dining area for firefighters. There are also separate shower, changing and rest areas that can be modified to accommodate the different male to female ratio on each watch.
There are now also areas within the station that the public can visit to obtain fire safety information, as well as a community room available for bookings.
