Adams County Fire Rescue announces new station 11 opening

Posted

A new, state-of-the-art Adams County Fire Station 11 adds space and better living quarters for rescue personnel, according to Chief Pat Laurienti.

The new station 11 is at 1675 W. 69th Ave. It replaces the old building at 7980 Elmwood Lane.

“The most exciting thing about the New Station 11 is our citizens and firefighters will have a state of the art fire station that will provide the best coverage this community has ever had the privilege of owning,” Adams County Fire Rescue Chief Pat Laurienti said in a written statement. “Our firefighters will also live in the safest environment ever seen with the new safety minded design.”

Although the station is one of the most progressive in the country, Adams County Fire Protection District did not ask taxpayers for any additional money or raise taxes, Laurienti said.

The 31,000 square foot superstation can now respond to calls faster and reach more citizens than ever before.

Designed for the changing community

The district’s design committee took the time to foresee the district’s growth, keeping it ahead of the ever changing community. The total square footage includes apparatus bays, living quarters, and classroom areas and a large community center is designed to host community events, and board meetings. A geothermal system utilizes the natural ground temperature to transfer heat during both heating and cooling seasons.

The station will also house a historical museum, celebrating both the history of North Washington Fire Rescue District and Southwest Adams County Fire Protection District, which became Adams County Fire Protection District.

The station was also designed with the health of the firefighters who serve the community of Adams County in mind. The new station has designated areas for the firefighters to go into after a call. These are called “zones.” The hot, warm, and cold zones prevent cancer causing contaminants to enter into the fire station.

An Open House for the public will be announced at a later date.

For more information on the opening of Station 11, please contact Julie Browman at jbrowman@acfpd.org or 720-930-0378.
