Moore Fire Station No. 2 | Oklahoma
KAS ensured Fire Station No. 2’s location would be safer and more strategic than the original structure, bringing peace of mind to the fire department and the community.
Designed to reflect the City of Moore’s community pride, this two-bay fire station is modestly sized and pays homage to firefighting’s historical roots. Kirkpatrick Architecture Studio incorporated masonry veneer and cast-stone accents, blending the City’s residential and commercial elements while providing for low-cost maintenance. The team engineered the 9,000-square-foot facility to minimize damage from Oklahoma’s seasonal severe weather. The cozy living quarters house six firefighters and one captain per shift and contain a full-service kitchen, an inviting day room, a well-appointed exercise room, and a watch room where emergency calls are received and processed. Most importantly, the new station had to be located farther back on the original station’s site, as response teams exiting the station sometimes presented a danger to cross-traffic motorists. KAS’s design and the new location provides a safer solution for both the firefighters and the community.
