C2 partnered with LeChase Construction to design a new $2.1 million fire station for the Caroga Lake Volunteer Fire Company.
After years of raising money, planning, and designing, a new, 9,885 square foot station located at 3262 Route 29A was constructed. The existing fire station, built in the 1950s, was not large enough for the current equipment needs, and no longer met the needs of the community.
The new facility features four, truck bays, doubling the size of their original facility bay. The additional space allows them to store equipment that had been sitting outside, indoors. Accommodating the current and future equipment needs will also extend the life of their fleet.
The station also includes dedicated spaces for training, meeting, and an administrative area. Additionally, the facility includes a ready room, full kitchen, and recreation room.
Year Completed: 2020
Size: 9,885 SF
The new station will allow the fire company to better respond to the 100-mile, all-season recreational areas they serve. The fire company currently provides fire suppression, first responder medical service, wild land fire suppression, search and rescue, extrication, seasonal snow mobile, water and surface ice rescue.
