A new station in a narrow space

Elmont Fire District’s Engine 4 Fire Station is located on an unusually narrow lot in a dense suburban setting. The existing fire station was in poor condition and had not been renovated in many years, making it more economical for the District to demolish the building and construct a new facility in its place. The new, three-story fire station was constructed on nearly the same footprint as the former building. Exterior finishes featured metal roofing and brick, both environmentally sustainable materials. Layout of the building includes two bays with a separate gear area, an office, a training room, and an exterior terrace off the third floor recreation room. With efficiency in mind, the entire facility follows the firefighters’ workflow from the entrance to their turnout gear to the trucks and equipment.
