HUDSON FIRE DEPARTMENT | HUDSON,wi
The Hudson Fire Station is a precast concrete facility equipped with 14 apparatus bays. It includes a large dispatch room, training room with a serving kitchen, fitness center with large steam sauna, offices and conference rooms and a training / hose tower designed to allow for a multitude of training functions to occur within its shell. The hose tower provides for its originally deemed function, that of drying hoses. It also accommodates search and rescue training efforts, features repelling on its interior walls, allows for confined space rescue training, allows for raising and lowering down through the provided manhole with tripod, and provides a high volume space for quick evacuation of exhaust fumes and smoke from the space.
This design was awarded the nationally recognized 2020 Firehouse Station Design Award of an Honorable Mention.
