Date & Time
Thursday, May 26, 2022, 8:20 AM - 9:00 AM
Dennis Ross Patrick Stone

The global market is beginning to shift to electric vehicles for a world closer to zero emissions, including the electric apparatus. How will fire station designs evolve to accommodate electric apparatus? Ross shares programmatic changes to current fire stations. How will we charge the apparatus and other support vehicles; how will we manage the electric service into the building while dealing with local codes and ordinances for proper fire separation and fire suppression systems; how will we accommodate the battery storage. How can we incorporate the spaces into new fire stations and retrofit existing fire stations to be prepared for the electric apparatus and what could these futuristic bays look like?
