Miami Beach Fire Station No.4

Fire Station No.4 is located on Indian Creek, one of several waterways linking Biscayne Bay with the Atlantic Ocean. The 9,100 SF emergency response facility includes a 3-bay apparatus garage with an adjacent decontamination room; an alarm room; a firefighter dayroom, dining room and kitchen; a fitness center; a dormitory accommodating 12 emergency response staff;   and a variety of support spaces.

The building is elevated to mitigate potential storm surge from Biscayne Bay, and its structure and envelop is designed beyond code to accommodate the wind loads and pressures associated with a 175 mph windstorm event.
