NEW STATION DESIGN REVEALED AT PUBLIC MEETING

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 The overall design concept for the new fire station to house the James City-Bruton Volunteer Fire Department was unveiled to the public this evening. The plan for the new station includes two floors, increased living and functional space, and the capacity to sleep 30 volunteer firefighters and EMTs. The new station will also include facilities for three volunteer firefighter/EMTs to live in the station full-time while serving as a volunteer. Currently, construction of the new station is anticipated to begin in early Spring of 2014, and is expected to take approximately 16 months. Guernsey-Tingle Architects provided the flyover video showing the overall site layout.

The new layout also includes increased public parking areas, with access to public restrooms and meeting areas. Check back in the near future for floor plans and further details!
