The Edwards Fire and Emergency Services officially unveiled its airfield fire station during a ribbon-cutting ceremony, reports Antelope Valley Press.
The $44 million fire station is a 41,000-square-foot facilit. The new fire station replaces the old fire station, which has been in service for more than 50 years.
The new station provides two separate dedicated bays for structural and aircraft response. They can be accessed quickly from the centrally-located living and administration areas within the facility.
Another feature specifically designed for the firefighters is that the roof, wall and triple-glazed assemblies were all validated to ensure they met target sound levels.
