Fire protection for the flight line and all facilities at the Maine Air National Guard base is provided from this two-story station located next to the taxiway.
The station has seven bays for emergency vehicles on the first floor, and living quarters for fire fighters on duty on the second. A specialized ventilation system keeps fumes from vehicles or aircraft from migrating into the living spaces.
A repair shop for fire apparatus is conveniently located on the first floor near the equipment bays. Training rooms are also on the second floor, along with administrative offices for supervisory personnel. A communications center in operation 24 hours a day has a clear view of the flight line.
