New satellite Fire Station 8 will increase response and coverage to the growing City of Fargo. Fire Station 2 improvements include adding more room for storage and physical fitness training.

  • Living quarters for three firefighters and one captain per shift with a shared common cooking and gathering area, and expansion potential for another three fire fighters
  • Office space; classroom/training area with amenities for conferences and testing
  • Precast concrete construction
  • Apparatus/operations area with space for three fire department vehicles in three bays, two are drive-thru with an open storage mezzanine above
  • Parking for 16 vehicles
  • Interior equipment storage and three-tiered decontamination design (hot, warm, cold), ensuring all gear and equipment be sanitized and stored away from living quarters and offices
  • Interior systems with communications equipment, station alerting systems, exhaust removal systems, negative pressure areas in “warm” zones to keep contaminants out, and backup generator
  • Station’s location will be a critical component for response to fires and other emergencies in the city’s fast-growing south side

    • 714 SF addition with two new spaces; one room to accommodate physical fitness training; second room to accommodate firefighting gear storage
