It was built in 1992 with a brick exterior and a tile roof, and includes three apparatus bays. It has seven bedrooms, two bathrooms and a comfortable living area that allows for the crew of five or six to co-exist for 48 hours at a time.
Bonds in 2006 funded much-needed remodels to the front office, officer’s quarters, EMS supply storage, and exercise / fitness areas.
