Fire Station 2 is located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, an area that has seen tremendous growth and revitalization through private and public investment in recent years. The 12,000-square-foot fire station was awarded a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification and is a part of the City of Scottsdale’s green building initiative.
The two-story facility meets the daily operational needs of the fire department and the community, while utilizing both passive and active sustainable green building principles to maximize sustainability and enhance overall energy performance.
Station features include three apparatus bays, a utility shop, decontamination area, turn-out room, laundry area, crew and captain offices, training room, kitchen, dorms, physical conditioning area, and various other support spaces. The building also includes shaded patio areas and a community room with a connecting courtyard space for public use.
Scottsdale Fire Department has a goal of arriving on the scene of an emergency within four minutes or less, 80 percent of the time. This station will provide faster fire and EMS response to the 68th Street corridor, parts of downtown, and the more mature areas of the city's western border
The fire station opened on July 1, 2008, and is staffed with two four-person crews and a Battalion Chief.
