“Our fire station project has been identified as a need in the community for quite some time and I am thankful for the team at EAPC for listening to our needs and concerns. EAPC is a design firm that truly strives to understand our business. Together, we are designing our stations to meet the needs of a workspace, but also to have the feel of home as our firefighters spend a third of their life at these stations.”

—Kelli Kronschnabel, City of Minot Fire Chief
