Lauderhill Officials Say Goodbye to Temporary Fire House & Break Ground on a New Permanent Fire Station
The addition of Fire Station #110 in 2006 followed the City of Lauderhill’s annexation of the St. George, West Ken Lark and Broward Estates Communities. The City’s Fire Department has been operating out of a temporary facility located at 3120 NW 12 Place since that time.
On Thursday, July 17th at 10 am, the City’s Officials along with the Fire Department Staff and the residents of the City of Lauderhill will break ground for a new state of the art Fire Station to be located at the same address as the temporary facility.
The new 16,600 square foot permanent facility was designed and will be built to meet the LEED Silver standards. The LEED Silver criterion meets the City’s ordinance requiring all newly constructed City buildings to be environmentally friendly.
Fire Station #110 will include three fire truck bays, the living quarters for fire rescue staff, a kitchen, a dayroom, an exercise room, separate restroom/shower facilities for both male and females, offices, storage rooms, a stand-by emergency generator, a police sub-station, and a medical triage room on the first floor.
The second floor will include a multi-purpose room and serve as the City’s back-up Emergency Operations Center - as Fire Station #57 serves as the primary. The parking lot will eventually be located where the temporary facility is currently located and will include an above the ground diesel fueling station. Finally, an emergency traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Northwest 12th Place and Northwest 31st Avenue to safely allow the emergency trucks to enter onto NW 31st Avenue.
The transition from the temporary building into the new one will be seamless and Fire Station #110’s service will not be interrupted.
West Architecture and Design is the architect and builder of the new Fire Station.
