Abstract:

One of the critical services on an Air Force Base is fire protection. Currently the physical facilities at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are outdated, physically separated, and marginally adequate. None of the current facilities were designed to support a fire and rescue mission. The fire and crash rescue equipment is stored at three different locations in Areas A and C of the base the main fire station, the flight line station and a hangar. A new facility, designed as a fire station, has been programmed for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to consolidate the fire protection function under one roof. The new facility will reduce operational costs and manpower requirements, and will improve the operational efficiency of the fire department. The objective was to prepare a design for a fire station to be constructed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. This design attempts to optimize functional efficiency at the least life-cycle structural cost. This station will house and provide repair facilities for 14 vehicles, ranging from small pickup trucks to large crash and structural fire trucks. The design will provide offices, training rooms, sleeping quarters, dining facilities, and recreational facilities for approximately 20 men per shift.
