IMMOKALEE, Fla. – On September 27th, Wright Construction Group broke ground to commemorate the construction process of the new Fire Station #30 in Immokalee. The $4 million dollar project is scheduled to be completed in October 2022.
In partnership with Architect GMA, Wright Construction Group, Inc., will provide design-build services to build the new fire station, directly across the street from the existing Fire Station #30. The new three-story structure is designed to be able to withstand an ultimate wind speed of 170 mph and will have all impact-resistant cladding.
The first floor, having access to the Apparatus Bays, will also be equipped with bunker gear storage, shop areas, conference rooms, a lobby, and a laundry room. In contrast to the traditional overhead coiling doors, the proposed three apparatus bay exit doors will have vertical folding doors installed, allowing for a quicker response time for the trucks leaving the apparatus bay. The third floor will have a full kitchen and dining room, five full bathrooms, a fitness room, a lounge room, all bunk rooms, and an outdoor porch. The fire station will also be equipped with a 3000-gallon diesel fuel tank to fill up all fire station vehicles, as well as a 500-gallon liquid propane tank for the kitchen and water heaters.
“Fire Station #30 will be our firefighter’s second home. It’s important that we make it feel like one for them,” said Fire Chief Michael Choate.
Immokalee is a city in Collier County, Florida, on the east coast of the state with a population of 26,000 people.
