Lexington Fire Station No. 2
The new Lexington Fire Station #2 is designed to replace an aging facility on New Circle Road. The new site is located within a half mile of the existing site, on the opposite side of New Circle Road in an industrial area. In addition to housing two companies, the facility will also become the warehousing area for the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government EMS Services. An independent warehouse and support facilities will be built as part of this fire station.
This building is designed with five apparatus bays, deep enough to house two pumpers, with doors at both the front and rear of the building. Living quarters for 16 fire fighters are provided on-site including a full kitchen, dormitories, and locker rooms. Because training is such an important feature in the modern day fire department, a 50 person training room is included as part of this project. This training room is large enough to serve several companies and adjacent fire stations within the northeast side of town.
