Abstract : The 377 ABW proposes to construct, operate, and maintain a new fire station at Kirtland AFB. The new fire station would be constructed in accordance with Air Force Handbook 32-1084, Facility Requirements, and the Air Force Fire Station Design Guide. The facility would consist of a noncombustible one-story structure with three high-bay, drive-through apparatus stalls; separate men's and women's restrooms with lockers and showers; separate men's and women's sleeping rooms; a separate captain's sleeping room and restroom; and a day room with a kitchen. The existing Fire Station 3 (4,312 square feet) would be demolished once construction of the proposed new Fire Station 3 is complete. The proposed new Fire Station 3 would be approximately 7,320 square feet. The three high-bay, drivethrough apparatus stalls would be sized to hold P-24 pumper and P-18 water tender firefighting apparatus with electric roll-up doors and a vehicle exhaust removal system. The facility would be a steel or reinforced concrete structure with reinforced masonry walls, reinforced concrete foundation and floors and a sloped standing seam metal roof. Construction activities would include connections to nearby electrical, water, natural gas, sanitary sewer, and communications utilities. Connection to the sanitary sewer would include the installation of a lift station connected to the installation sewer system, which is approximately 4,800 feet southwest of the site. The Proposed Action would provide heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems; a 150-kilowatt emergency generator to provide uninterruptible power supply for emergency power and communications; parking; paving; landscaping; and security provisions. The analysis in the EA considers the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative. Two site location alternatives to the Proposed Action were considered, but eliminated from detailed analysis due to not meeting the criteria set forth in the Air Force Fire Station Design Guide.
