ABOUT THE PROJECT
As Calgary continues to grow, so too does the need to provide essential services. The Calgary Fire Department (CFD) is key to the safety of Calgarians and continuity of emergency response is a critical factor when choosing a location for a new hall. Rapid growth in southeast Calgary necessitated an urgency of need for a new fire hall to service communities in this area.
After exploring options for a temporary unit, CFD determined that a transportable structure that can be purchased, mobilized, stored, and moved to accommodate emergency response activities as required, would be an asset to The City until the permanent structure is completed.The following map also shows the plan for a permanent Fire Hall within this overall parcel. The permanent structure will allow for increased efficiencies operations and long-term establishment of service delivery to the community.
KEY PROJECT CONSIDERATIONS
The safety of Calgarians and continuity of emergency response were considered critical when choosing the site design and building layout.
