How to build a fire station (eBook)

Download this Fire Chief eBook to learn how to navigate the often complicated process of designing, funding and constructing a new fire station


Nearly half of all fire stations in the U.S. are more than 40 years old. These older stations often lack appropriate living accommodations, vehicle parking, equipment storage, space for decontamination and training, and the internal infrastructure requirements for high-speed communication tools.

Modern fire station construction has changed dramatically over the years, with advancements such as sprinklers, wireless colorized alerting systems, dispatch computers, and clean gear storage. From the barn doors of yesteryear that held back horses to the automated doors of today shielding million-dollar fire trucks, the needs of fire departments continue to outpace construction.

In this eBook, you will learn:

  • How to plan a new fire station in your community, ensuring the facility meets current and future needs.
  • Four strategies to get the most from limited funds for fire station design and construction, helping you maximize your budget.
  • The number one issue in building a fire station, providing critical insights into successful construction projects.
  • Lessons learned from three departments’ efforts to plan for, fund, and complete construction on fire stations, offering valuable real-world examples.
