The Anne Arundel County Fire Department celebrates the grand opening of the new Lake Shore Fire Station, July 31.
The new station sits at 4642 Mountain Road in Pasadena, a property that used to house Pasadena Hardware, adjacent to Galillee Lutheran Church. The 12,000 square-foot building sits on 3.5 acres and is the new home of the Lake Shore Volunteer Fire Company.
The building boasts "green" site design features including solar technology, Energy Star appliances, strategies for more efficient landscaping and irrigation, low emission appliances, stormwater control, and LEED Silver certification.
Those who occupy the station can use its new commercial kitchen, physical training room, offices for volunteer personnel, and work spaces for duty officers, crew, and county police. Emergency vehicles are housed in drive through engine bays with exhaust removal systems.
