SANFORD FIRE DEPARTMENT OPERATIONAL AND FACILITIES STUDY
In the fall of 2016, Port City Architecture was hired by the City of Sanford, Maine to study the City’s Fire/EMS Department. The purpose of the Sanford Fire Station Study is to provide a 50 to 75 year facilities and operations plan for the city that will allow the fire department to offer the best emergency services to the people of Sanford and Springvale in the most cost effective manner. The study examined the current facility locations, response times, apparatus, staffing, building space programs, building sites, and building designs. The study then provided our professional recommendations for future staffing, apparatus needs, and renovation or relocation of the facilities to address the long term needs of the Sanford and Springvale communities.
