Case Study

City of Jersey Village

Jersey Village Fire Station

Located northwest of Houston, the City of Jersey Village is a tight-knit community of just under 8,000 Texans. When disaster strikes, the city relies on a small, dedicated group of career and volunteer emergency responders—many of whom are based at the Jersey Village Fire Department. The fire department’s fleet consists of rescue and fire trucks, ambulances, command vehicles, an EMS first responder vehicle, and even a rescue boat, and they respond to medical, rescue, and hazardous material emergencies as well as fires. The department has also shown a commitment to educating the community and offers a Citizen’s Fire Academy program that teaches basic emergency response, first aid, and CPR.

Salas O’Brien assisted the fire department during a remodel and addition to their existing facility. Our team provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering for the project, which added additional staff sleeping quarters as well as eight new apparatus bays for the department’s fire trucks and ambulances. The finished 17,000-square-foot station features new mechanical and exhaust systems as well as newer, safer heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). The remodel also involved the addition of a new breathing air compressor system specifically designed for fire department use.
