The newest fire station in the district also offers an updated floorplan and layout that features three drive-thru apparatus bays, nine hotel-style rooms for fire fighters (including two captain’s bedrooms), spacious and secure parking, an interior courtyard, and a large public community room – all located on a tight urban site measuring 10,000 square feet. Each of the hotel-style rooms has a bathroom, providing each firefighter with more privacy and allowing the fire department to staff their crews with sensitivity to gender.
