Fire Station 204
The theme for this semester was to research the prevalence of workplace toxins at fire stations and current methods of limiting their transfer to fire station living quarters / fire fighters. Students were educated on how the decontamination of equipment / PPE / vehicles
and individuals occurs in the most state-of-the-art fire stations in the world.
The primary objective was to have individual students prepare drawings that demonstrate a full-scale reconfiguration of Station 204 in order to limit the transfer of toxins between the apparatus bay, gear, and the living quarters. Students were also encouraged to tackle some of the other issues that are present at the fire station, such as limited privacy, lack of storage, poor air circulation, and flow of traffic within the building.
