The station’s 36’ x 68’ (2448 sf) apparatus room accommodates a two-vehicle engine company and support vehicles. Four overhead doors operate by remote control and are interconnected with the apparatus room’s exhaust system. A separate “industrial waste” sanitary sewer system allows washdown of equipment and containment of potentially toxic materials when required.
The firefighter staff area includes:
• Dormitory for 9 firefighters
• Officers quarters for 4 officers
• Kitchen and day room with patio area
• Training room
• Communications office
• Toilets, lockers and storage areas
The site was designed to accommodate large vehicle maneuvering, and training and maintenance requirements. The apparatus room accommodates “drive-through”parking of emergency vehicles. The entire structure provides approximately 6700 sf.
