Chisago City Minnesota Fire Department has been serving their community from their existing station since the 1960’s. Five Bugles Design was hired to design their new facility. An extensive programming and preliminary design phase helped the department balance their needs against the construction budget. Ultimately, this Paid on Call department’s new facility will meet their needs with new bay space for all of their apparatus as well as classroom training, physical training, and office space. A critical element of the design was maintaining a kitchen and dayroom space adequate for the their monthly drill night and dinner; a critical cultural element for the department.
