STATION 29 (East) • (513) 248.4853
The East station is located at 5644 Sugar Camp Road. The building is just under 10,000 square feet and houses one fire engine, and one advanced life support (ALS) paramedic unit. There is additional space in the apparatus bays to house our Mass Casualty Unit, which is a regional asset for southwest Ohio that was purchased with government grant funds. The station is staffed around the clock with a crew of three to five people, depending on daily staffing. This station was designed with some state-of-the-art technology built into it, and adheres to many of the LEED design standards related to lighting and HVAC controls. The goal was to make this facility as environmentally friendly and cost-efficient as possible since the building operates on a continuous use cycle, unlike most standard office buildings.
Additionally, we worked to make use of every space possible, so the mezzanine in our apparatus bays that houses the water heater, duct work and an air compressor also has a training area incorporated into it. The training area consists of two windows that our crews can practice accessing, an anchor wall to practice rope rescue evolutions with, and a manhole that descends into the room below the mezzanine to practice confined space rescue. This new station was designed to last us for the next fifty years, so we plan to get our full use out of it!
