Miami Township (Greene County) was working out of a small fire station in downtown Yellow Springs that had been built in the 1950’s and modified over the years, but didn’t have room to grow or modernize in a way that was desperately needed.
The Results of the Renovation
MSA worked with the Township to design a station that would be scaled to the neighborhood but could still be viewed as a source of civic pride. The resulting 17,500 s.f. brick fire station has a broad standing seam metal roof with deep eaves and decorative brackets to relate to the residential community Fire-Rescue Station into which it was built. The facility includes 5 apparatus bays, a training mezzanine, 6 bunk rooms, living quarters, office space, Township administration offices, and a large training room that doubles as a Township Trustee meeting room.
