Amery Fire Station
This $1.2 million, 11,200 s.f. facility utilizes architectural pre-cast panel construction, which met the city’s requirement for a storm-proof shelter, yet allowed more flexibility and creativity in design. One of the building towers includes a lift used for drying fire hoses. The main entrance tower houses the City’s original fire bell, which was commissioned in 1895. The new fire hall includes space for the City’s new fire equipment, training facilities, a kitchen, and separate men’s and women’s locker rooms and showers.
Other unique features that make the facility multifunctional include a front lobby and reception area designed to accommodate trail users (the Gandy Dancer Trail is along the building’s south wall) and downtown visitors. Amenities include public restrooms, vending machines, and comfortable seating.
