Sarasota County Fire Station - Number 12
Fire Station 12 is located on Bee Ridge Road at Murdock Avenue. FS 12 was a replacement station for the previous 60-year old facility at this location.
A two-story design was implemented due to limited space on the site. The ground floor includes two drive-through apparatus bays for a fire and rescue vehicle. Included are rooms for gear storage, hose drying, laundry facilities and EMS storage. An intermediate mezzanine mechanical level and the top floor will house the living quarters for six fire fighters.
Upon completion Fire Station 12 achieved LEED Silver certification through the USGBC by utilizing sustainable design requirements and is designed to withstand Category 4 hurricane winds.
