WARSAW, Ind. (Jan. 29, 2018) – The town of Warsaw will soon be served by a new fire station, officials recently announced. The project, designed by Martin Riley Architects & Engineers, and being built by Mosaic Building Solutions, has been in the planning stages for over four years. It is being built new from the ground up and will be just under 14,000 square feet.
The designers and builders have worked very closely with Warsaw Fire Chief Michael Wilson and many local officials to make sure the space is visually appealing for its location. The brick and stone structure captures a bit of the local flavor and is designed to maintain a very warm, inviting feel to complement its residential surroundings.
In terms of service capabilities, this will be the first fire station in the area housing an ambulance, which will be contracted from Lutheran EMS. This will greatly improve response time to injured people and other health emergencies. Plus, a special storm sewer structure will be installed under one of the engine bays which can be used for confined space training for public safety employees.
“We are very excited about getting this phase done with the fire territory,” said Wilson. “The community response has been very good. They’re excited about having a station on their side of town.” Wilson noted that this station will be located south of railroad tracks which had made covering that portion of the Warsaw area difficult. A new tornado siren at the fire station will also serve this portion of the city.
There will be a final beam signing ceremony before it is placed at the top of the fire station structure. More details about the beam signing will be available soon.
