Bonita Springs Fire Station No. 5 is an 8,700-square-foot facility that replaces a temporary station that was located in Bonita Bay for 8 of the past years. The new facility is located in a central location on the main north/south through-way of Bonita Springs.

Station No. 5 has two drive-thru Apparatus Bays and a drive thru Maintenance Bay. It has sleeping accommodations for 10 fire fighters as well as an office/communication center, kitchen, day room and fitness room. The office/communication center is designed as a safe area to assure continuous operation during times of disaster.

The building design combines the district's requirements of brick exterior walls and standing seam metal roof, with residentially scaled “Florida vernacular” bungalow detailing, to serve as the transition between commercial development and an established single family neighborhood.
