As a key element in the City’s effort to implement their Long Range Strategic Plan to the Fire Department, this facility was developed to provide a combined fire station. This state-of-the-art building integrates the department’s Headquarters, Training Center, Emergency Operations Center and the primary fire station. This station responds to fire, EMS and calls requiring specialized apparatus and equipment housed at this site.
Training areas include classrooms, interior and exterior training towers, exterior space for hose and pump testing and evolutions. Staff and crew support for these areas is also provided. The combined facility resources and security of the Training Center and Headquarters provide the necessary element and support for the Emergency Operations Center.
Because of the heavy use that this building will receive by providing full-time services, twenty four hours per day, seven days per week, special care was taken in the design, specifications and construction to provide maximum wear resistance and to minimize the extent of on-going maintenance. This included everything from site paving, exterior building material, interior high-wear finishes and construction, as well as furniture. As an Emergency Service Facility in the designated earthquake zone, it was also designed to meet aggressive seismic restraint requirements.
The owner cleared the site of an existing structure, added a road and completed some rough grading at the site prior to award of the Building Construction Contract.
