The Lehigh Acres Fire Control and Rescue District engaged Gora McGahey to create a prototype fire station design which will be used to build stations # 4 and # 5.
Fire Station # 4 is located at the corner of Sunshine Boulevard and 16th Street, and Fire Station # 5 will be located at the corner of Alexander Graham Bell Boulevard and Milwaukee Boulevard. The architects and the fire district agreed that the design should respect the residential character of the neighborhoods where these stations are being built. The exterior of both buildings will feature a brick façade and low-pitched, shingle roof.
The buildings will include three offices and a training room/classroom (which can also be used for public meetings and seminars. There are 12 individual sleeping rooms, five baths, a kitchen, day room and exercise room. Additionally, the 13,000 square foot facilities will each have three equipment bays.
