Conroe’s 8,900 sf Fire Station No. 4 is a replacement station that stands as an easily recognizable symbol from Highway 45 and echo’s the surrounding area’s predominantly residential developments.
The design for this station was a cooperative process between user and architect. The City’s existing stations were evaluated in order incorporate their most successful features into the new station’s design. The two pull-through bay station provides accommodations for three shifts of seven firefighters each.
Various features throughout the station reflect the City’s pride for the fire department and commemorate the fire department’s centennial anniversary. The most noticeable features is the prominent use of the department’s logo in the tower’s exterior light fixtures, lobby flooring, and interior wall signage. Other features include the incorporation of low-maintenance stained and patterned concrete flooring throughout the station; a bunker gear room equipped with custom designed racks and benches; and a second-floor, climate-controlled quartermaster’s area with custom designed storage units.
