Cudjoe Key Fire Station

Topping Off Ceremony

The contractor for the 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app’s Fire Station 11 hosted a “topping off” ceremony on Oct. 8, 2019 at the station grounds on Cudjoe Key. 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app Project Management and 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app Fire Rescue were in attendance. A topping off celebrates the completion of the roof structure or the highest point on the building.

“This station is critical to 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app Fire Rescue’s infrastructure,” said Deputy Chief Steve Hudson. “It will be an asset to the Lower Keys community and will help reduce response times and improve our ISO rating in the service area.”

Currently, 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app’s Station 11 is housed at the 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app 皇冠体育官方app体育官方app Sheriff’s Office Cudjoe Key substation. The new station will be home to the latest addition to the fleet: Ladder 11, and an Advanced Life Support rescue truck.

The building will be able to withstand category 5 hurricanes and wind gusts up to 200 miles per hour. The project began in November 2018 and has a tentative completion date in early 2020.
