The Brewster Fire/Rescue Department is pleased to announce receipt of the distinguished Career Category 1 Silver Award in the 2018 Firehouse Magazine Station Design Awards competition (see press release below).
Fort Atkinson, WI, November 1, 2018 — Firehouse Magazine has announced the winners of its fifth annual Station Design Awards program, which recognizes outstanding architecture and design from fire departments nationwide. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards have been distributed across six categories in this prestigious competition: Career 1 and 2 departments, Satellite stations, Volunteer/Combination departments, Training facilities and renovated fire stations. (see page #70 of PDF for Brewster Fire)
Janet Wilmoth, special projects director to Firehouse, noted that the typical fire station has changed significantly over the past 25 years due to the increased responsibilities picked up by fire departments across North America: “The judging of this year’s 37 entries was very difficult for the judges because the commitment to safety and health in the station is obvious. Fire departments are more proactive in designing healthier environments and restricting toxins and carcinogens returning on firefighters in the stations. Every one of this year’s entries is a winner for its personnel and community they serve.”
Winners were selected by a panel of five judges, including a deputy chief, fire marshal, two architects, and a fire engineer/architect with experience in fire station designs.
