Denver Fire Station #18

At this 2014 cutting-edge firehouse, firefighters can train for all types of emergencies including high-rise buildings, search and rescue and confined space rescue. Behind the station, the roof cutting training prop is configured to allow the debris to fall for easy cleanup. Station 18 is located on more than one and a half acres of land in the Lowry neighborhood and is a “drive through” building allowing for better maneuvering of trucks and equipment in and out of the station (Denver Fire Department News Release). Lowry was originally home to Lowry Air Force Base from 1938-1966, and was eventually redeveloped into a master-planned community (Art and History).
