In an emergency always call 9-1-1
Focusing on the future emergency service needs of the community, the City built a new centrally located fire station that opened on September 11, 2004 that includes several key components unique to this type of facility.
"Safe room" vestibules allow anyone who may feel threatened by a stranger to seek protection until Police arrive. The station also includes an EMS clinic and a 30 person training and community room that is capable of functioning as an Emergency Operations Center in the event of a disaster.
The Administrative area includes offices for the Chief, Lieutenant, Fire Prevention and a watch office/reception area that is adjacent to the apparatus bays. Adequate space has been included for storage, laundry and housekeeping services and communications equipment.
The living areas include three double bedrooms for the firefighters, a dining area, full service kitchen, dayroom, shower and toilet rooms, lockers and physical fitness training space. There are individual lockers for bedding, personal storage and PPE for each of the 30 firefighters.
