US Air Force Fire Station Design Guide – 1997Page 2
We are dedicated to providing our firefighters first-rate fire stations. Those stations serve a dual purpose. First, they are emergency response facilities for firefighters who protect our people,aircraft, facilities and equipment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Just as important, the firestations "home away from home" for our firefighters, who stand ready to respond to a wide variety of emergencies during many hours on duty.We ask a lot of our firefighters - men and women who daily prove their readiness - to risk it all for us. In return, we will ensure they have a quality environment in which to work and live - that's what this guide is all about. Our Air Force standards are spelled out in this Fire Station Design Guide.It will be crucial to your success in improving mission capability and quality of life for our firefighters.
