The City of Rochester is currently in the construction phase for their new Fire Station / Public Safety Facility. The current outdated station is going on 60 years and is no longer able to facilitate the emergency service needs for the city. This project will encompass a multi-agency building to contain a fire station, emergency operations center, regional dispatching, a police presence, and shared space, which includes conference rooms, training rooms, and kitchen and break areas.

The new station will be located in the NE quadrant of the city on a nine (9) area site, with the intent to utilize 4 to 5 areas for the project. Recommendation for future growth or expansion will also be provided to the city for the extra site space options. The new station will feature a geothermal heating and cooling system.

Facility features include:
• Drive-through Bays
• Vestibule, Lobby / Museum
• Full day room and kitchen area
• Training room for 80 people
• Conference room
• Six (6) private dorm rooms with desk and Jack / Jill restrooms
• Fitness room
