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 The current outdated station is going on 60 years and is no longer able to facilitate the emergency service needs for the city.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 area site, with the intent to utilize four to five 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 private dorm rooms with desk and Jack/Jill restrooms
- Fitness room
