JEMA’s Mission Critical Design Brings Highest Standards To Lincoln County
There was a lot of celebrating going on as Lincoln County Fire Protection District cut the ribbon on its new Fire Station No. 2, located on Highway C in Moscow Mills, MO. “Emergency responders deserve the highest standard of health and safety measures, and I am proud this new station will take their wellbeing into account,” said LCFPD Chief Mike Marlo. “I look forward to many years of this firehouse serving as a place for our firefighters to live, train and bravely serve the residents of the Fire Protection District.” JEMA’s design for the 9,000 sq. ft. category IV mission critical facility includes two apparatus bays, a double deep apparatus bay, five bunk room suites, a fitness center, and a storm shelter. The exterior features limestone and glazed brick on the main facade, which creates a building that is contextual to its surroundings, yet distinctly modern.
The new Fire Station No. 2 replaces the previous station from the early 1970s and significantly increases the district’s coverage in Lincoln County. The project was funded by Proposition Firefighters, which voters approved in 2020.
