The existing electrical generators at both fire stations have approached their useful life and replacement parts are becoming difficult to obtain. So this project will replace those generators and install them in a new location. Currently both fire stations have an electrical generator within a mechanical loft adjacent to the dormitories. During power outages and when the generator exercises it becomes a nuisance to resting fire fighters. So the plan is to relocate a new generator along the exterior of the building and up-sized it. Currently the generator only services a few circuits so the majority of the building has no emergency power. It has been noted that the Fire Stations could be used as emergency command centers and/ or shelters so emergency power to key areas of the building is critical.
