Station 37 is 11,000 SF in total size and consists of 4,000 SF of staff dormitory and 7,000 SF of apparatus bay. This facility was designed for a full staff with the ability to house additional staff as the area grows and the demand for emergency services increases.
Station #37 incorporates training elements such as, a confined space prop, manhole rescue prop, rock climbing wall and a repelling wall, which are unique for fire houses. It is anticipated that the training components will be utilized by many neighboring fire districts to train their personnel. The mechanical system is comprised of a building wide radiant floor heating system, an evaporative cooling system in the apparatus bays and a secondary hydronic forced air heating system in the dorms with a conventional forced air cooling system. The electrical system is supplemented by a 30kW photovoltaic solar system that was fully funded by rebates through Nevada Energy. The structure is constructed with a combination of masonry and pre-engineered steel building.
