The Bagdad Fire Protection District is a rural all-volunteer fire department which covers 58 square miles in Shelby County, Kentucky.
When they needed a design & build contractor to help replace their old fire station across the road, they turned to Walters Buildings. Walters Buildings has been designing Fire Stations for 60 years. By utilizing post frame construction and steel panels, we were able to build a highly functional, efficient and safe building that will last the community for generations.
The entire project measures over 6,000 square feet. The garage is 54' x 72' x 14' and features three overhead doors on each side that are synchronized to open at the same time for drive-thru traffic and minimize exhaust fumes. The garage also features an epoxy non-skid floor with air & electric drops for working on the fire engines.
The office measures 54' x 40' x 9' and includes a kitchen/lounge, office space, meeting rooms, bathroom, dispatch office, and lockers & washroom.
