Monticello fire department | Monticello, MN
This 20,000 s.f. facility made up of a precast concrete structure houses an Emergency Operations Center (EOC), administrative offices, a large training room, a hose/training tower, 12 apparatus bays, a gear grid room, a fitness room, a radio room, SCBA room, sweat sauna, dirty restroom, emergency generator, display area for historic fire trucks, and storage rooms. The project was also designed to accommodate growth of the department, with space planned for future overnight sleeping rooms and a day room for full-time fire fighters. With this efficient and thorough design, the Monticello Fire Station received national recognition and a bronze honor in the 2020 Firehouse Station Design Awards.
