Firehouse Built to Last
The two-story brick and stone facility has four drive-through bays and a partial basement for the building’s mechanical infrastructure. Supporting the battalion chief and nine personnel, the station garage holds the chief’s car, paramedic unit, engine ladder, and a reserve Emergency Medical Services (EMS) unit, all having Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP). The site also houses a critical fiber optic network hub and radio system components.
The station includes an in-floor heating system, epoxy floors, training features in the stairwell, a two-phase Locution alerting system, two offices, seven Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) bathrooms, showers, a separate room for self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) maintenance, a gear room, wellness room, and training room with video conferencing, an elevator, and a fire pole.
The living quarters house the chief’s office on the first floor with separate sleeping quarters. The second floor contains a kitchen, patio, day room, individual sleeping quarters, and built-in lockers to create a flexible and comfortable living space for personnel.
