Russian term or phrase:центральный пункт пожарной связи
Взрывопожароопасные объекты и крупные театрально-зрелищные предприятия (нефтебазы, театры и др.) необходимо обеспечивать прямой телефонной связью с ближайшим подразделением государственной противопожарной службы или центральным пунктом пожарной связи населенных пунктов.
Explanation: This would be one way of dealing with it, given that you already have fire service/fire station covered in the phrase already. It is a bit of a cultural translation as this is what the centre would be called in the UK and is not specifically for the fire service, but for all three emergency services.
Perhaps you could translate the whole thing as: ....nearest fire station or central emergency services
