Kokomo Fire Station No. 4

Kokomo Fire Station No. 4

The City of Kokomo has provided fire protection since 1867 and has grown to more than 100 fire fighters staffing six stations.  The City of Kokomo needed an additional fire station located south and west of city limits.  The City of Kokomo wanted to build a fire station with low operation costs without sacrificing comfort to the fire fighters who occupy the station continuously.

The new facility was to house six dormitory rooms, with the ability to grow to eight, and two apparatus bays.

DAE recommended a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system with high efficiency, T5 and compact fluorescent lighting, HVAC (95% AFUE, 16 SEER) units, radiant tube heaters (garage 90% AFUE) and condensing (90% AFUE) gas hot water heater.  The facility also includes high efficiency light emitting diode (LED) site lighting and water saving toilets and urinals.

Kokomo Mayor Greg Good night says ‘it costs the city about $1 million a year to staff one fire engine 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The new Fire Station #4 will use 25% less energy and cost only 6% more than a fire station built to Indiana Building Code.

Generator 200 KVA used NFPA 99 & 110.
