Fire Station No. 1 is an 18,000-square-foot two-story station built adjacent to the Village of Mt. Orab's original station. It includes four, double-stack bays accessed from each end of the bay.

The facility includes a training mezzanine, private rooms for the crew, a day room, locker rooms, training and conference room, a full service kitchen, and various support and administrative areas.

The exterior is a blend of EIFS, brick, calcium silicate stone, and metal roofing panels. A pre-engineered frame is used for the shell's structural frame
while load-bearing masonry is used to support the second floor precast planks. With the large Doric columns flanking
the entry, the aesthetics of the new building meets the desire of the Village to create a classic and distinguished looking public building.

The Village holds this design concept as a model for future Village administrative development.
