City of Austin Del Valle Fire + EMS Station
This station is the first in a series of 5 planned combination Fire and EMS stations throughout Austin and Travis Country.
The goal of the overall project is to provide lower response times to several neighborhoods in Austin and Travis Country which do not currently have adequate emergency response times. To accomplish this, the five stations were grouped together and funded as one project with the same contractor and design team for all 5 projects.
The Del Valle station has a bold modern design which adds character to growing neighborhood. The 12,500-square-foot station is designed for 24-hour occupancy, accommodating the different shift schedules of Fire and EMS. There are four drive-through apparatus bays, a fueling station, and a 6,000-square-foot detached, pre-engineered metal building for storing the EMS vehicles which service events at the adjacent Circuit of the Americas. The comfort and convenience of the responders was key to the design of the station which includes 12 two-bed sleep rooms, 5 full restrooms, fitness center, 1,100-square-foot kitchen and dayroom area, and a large, covered deck.
