Fire Station 21--7320 Dublin Blvd.
Fire Station 21 went into service on August 26, 2013. It houses one engine pumper and one brush truck with a crew of four personnel.
Fire Station 21 is a LEED-Platinum Building, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The energy-efficient design is expected to save over 60% in energy and utility costs over its lifespan. The station contains a geo-exchange mechanical heating and cooling system, which includes passive heating and cooling features, solar panels on the roof, and the first approved grey-water system in the county. This grey water will be used to irrigate a community garden adjacent to the station.
Fire Station 21 represents an "old firehouse" design concept. It is a two-story building with about 5,990 square feet on each floor. Work and living areas are located on the upper level and apparatus bays on the lower level. Firefighters can access the bays quickly from upstairs using fire poles or stairways situated on either side of the building. The apparatus bay doors are bi-folding vertical-hinged doors designed to save substantial dollars on operations and maintenance costs.
