Fire Station #40 is a one-story new construction facility of approximately 5,684 SF located in Waldo, FL that houses approximately 18 or more fire fighters and EMS personnel operating on three continuous shifts 7 days a week. Along with a two-bay apparatus area, the building is comprised of 7 dorm rooms and 4 full bathrooms (1 ADA accessible). The floor plan includes a full kitchen with commercial grade appliances, a living area, fitness and locker room, laundry/janitorial room, decontamination room, a maintenance workshop, storage rooms, and a covered outdoor patio area. The station was built with expansion in mind as room for a third bay in the future is a factor in all decisions.
