The facility also features a weight room, ten bunkrooms, two Captain rooms, bathroom and shower areas, three apparatus bays, and a rain garden.

Split system air conditioning allows each firefighter to control their own temperature. Durable finishes complete the space making it ideal for easy maintenance.
