Central Fire Station

KSA designed the new Dallas W. Greene, Jr. Central Fire Station in Shreveport, Louisiana. The new facility reflects the client’s desire to blend historical architectural elements of the original fire station into a new facility that will serve the needs of the City of Shreveport for the next 100 years. The facility includes a two-story operations building with six drive-thru engine bays and two smaller back-in bays. The engine bays are air conditioned and heated and are equipped with an exhaust removal system. Each firefighter has an individual bunker gear locker. The facility is equipped with the First-In® Fire Station Alerting System, which incorporates lights and audible announcements to wake only the firefighters and emergency medical personnel needed for specific calls and a decontamination shower.
