The building program and design for the City’s new main fire rescue headquarters and emergency management facility were developed to achieve LEED Silver Certification and included a 25,000 SF, two-story complex with four apparatus bays and living quarters for up to 16 firefighters. The new facility is at the SW corner of Foster Road and NW 1st Avenue. In addition to on-duty fire rescue staff, the building houses the City’s Fire Prevention Bureau, including office space for fire inspectors, plans review, and public education. The City’s fire rescue administrative headquarters will be located within the new facility, in addition to its emergency operations, as well as meeting space. Construction documents for the project are complete.
