Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department, Prince George's County, MD

Construction will begin soon on this new 15 million dollar, 25,000 s.f., two story, four bay, all brick fire station # 1 in Hyattsville. This is a combined facility for Prince George's County Fire and EMS, Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department and the American Red Cross - a unique and first ever three stakeholder partnership of this kind in Prince George's County, Maryland. 


This emergency services facility includes separate offices and a joint training center for the regional American Red Cross, as well as home for the Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department, who just celebrated their 125th year of service to their community - one of many very busy fire, EMS, and Rescue station locations responding to thousands of fire, rescue and EMS calls in a large and rapidly growing metropolitan response area of the Prince George's County Fire and EMS Department adjacent to Washington, DC. 


This emergency services facility project includes a large apparatus area to accommodate a ladder truck, squad and two fire engines, plus two EMS ambulance units.  Also included are extended residential living facilities to house at least eighteen live-in volunteer fire fighters, EMTs and paramedics who are also students currently attending the Maryland Fire Training Academy (MIFRI) and/or other college studies at the nearby University of Maryland College Park campus.  In addition to a larger apparatus area, the new facility includes all the normal interior functions of a modern 21st century fire station, such as a large dayroom/kitchen/dining area for personnel, computer/study room for the students, physical training area, volunteer and career department offices, dual laundry facilities, formal decontamination area, and storage areas for fire fighters' turn-out gear and other fire fighting and EMS equipment. Additional sleeping areas for other non-student sleep-in volunteers, plus necessary and sufficient toilet and bathing facilities for the convenience of all, are provided. 


After being asked to design this project, our experienced design team eagerly started with several design options and alternatives. Then we worked closely and tirelessly with Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department, Prince George's County Fire and EMS Department, as well as the American Red Cross on a total solution and details that met all three stakeholders' needs on a difficult site within a tight budget.  It was vital to the volunteers that the building be functional and adequate for all their needs, but also that exterior design reflect a residential-like living situation that would also blend with and be indigenous to other nearby structures. The facility reflect the modern and growing Hyattsville community but with respect for the built environment of their past.

The owners, Mr. David Shott and his mother Ms. Diane Shott, were thrilled that our creativity, talent and experience allowed them to win the coveted "Silver Award" from a highly respected trade journal. A quote from store owner Mr. David Shott: "...I think that you are a perfectionist in what you do..."

This is the 'before' photograph of what will become a distinctive residence. Among the design challenges are to adapt this 1920's church building to new uses while retaining it's graceful charm and dignity.
