Site features include visitor parking, secured fire fighter parking, fuel station, emergency generator, hose tower, and an open patio area. The project also includes a small storage building for emergency supplies.

Fire Station 1 is a new 11,675 sf facility designed to replace the original station which was built in 1961. The 1.0 acre site is located on the northwest corner of Adams Avenue and Royal Palm Drive.

The station is located in a largely commercial corridor but is directly south of a residential portion of the City. The station is designed to accommodate ten fire fighters in an individual dormitory setting. Other station features include a three-bay, double-deep apparatus room, administrative office areas, kitchen, dining room, day room, physical training room, mechanic shop, medical supply storage, and the various support spaces required for a facility of this type.

Circulation within the station is organized around an open interior courtyard, intended to maximize daylight opportunities for the internal areas of the station.
