Project Area Map

Project Description

This Fire Station replaces the original building which was built in 1976. The original station and property has been modified/renovated numerous times through the years. The building is old, inadequate and suffering from chronic water damage, wood rot, and structural weakness.

As part of the Town’s initiative to upgrade facilities, a standard design for Town Fire Stations was developed in the late 1990's. The design includes the ability to withstand some seismic and high wind events and that the stations are built as high as possible due to storm surge and the ability to house additional staff in an extreme emergency. Construction of Fire Station No. 2 should start in September 2016 and will be LEED silver certified. The station is about 8,500 sq. ft. has sleeping facilities for 5 firefighters, a community meeting and training room, weight room, and three bays for fire apparatus and ambulances.

Fire Station No.2 serves Sea Pines.
