The Cleveland Volunteer Fire Station was commissioned by Delta State University. The station is one of three volunteer fire stations serving the city of Cleveland and was funded by and serves Delta State University and the airport. The station was designed and built in three phases: Phase I included a three truck bay with attached storage and restrooms; Phases II & III added a day/conference/training room with offices, storage and kitchen facilities, and an additional attached display truck bay showcases the department’s 1940 antique fire truck.

Completed in 2011, the programming of the fire station needed to reflect the reputation of the department as the “best volunteer fire department in the state” (Class 5), be mindful of the history of the department (a display bay for the department’s antique fire truck) as well as the “curb appeal” as the first building seen when arriving at the airport. Practical concerns included ease of maintenance, security, parking (staff and visitor), exterior truck washing capabilities, compliance with FAA & DOT regulations, and future expansion potential.

The exterior materials of Phase I truck bay were selected for appearance and aesthetics, durability, and long-term maintenance. The finish materials on Phase II and III were selected for the same. A pre-finished aluminum canopy with brick and split-face columns was added to the north side of the building of Phase II to create a covered patio and exterior gathering space.

Construction of the Cleveland Volunteer Fire Station benefits Delta State University, the airport, and the city of Cleveland with shortened response times, a greater coverage area, and enhanced community “curb appeal”.
