Williamson County Emergency Services Station #24 is the first step in this department’s transition process from a volunteer to a paid fire department. It is a fully-functional station that houses fire, EMS and other first-response personnel, vehicles and apparatus. Three double-stacked bays and three single bays flank the core of the building which contains bunk rooms, an exercise room, a dayroom, a full kitchen, offices, and storage. The facility is capable of accommodating 8-12 personnel with future expansion plans to accommodate 16-20. The Sheriff’s office also has space within the facility so that the County can realize synergies between law enforcement and emergency first-responders.
The architecture is intended to reflect the rural character of the community it serves. The EMS bays are separated from the main living space by a breezeway that connects the front and back patios. Red standing-seam metal wall panels were used to denote points of entry and to accentuate the apparatus bays. Exterior materials of brick and stone, double-hung windows, and hipped and gabled roofs with dormers reflect the residential surroundings.
