Firehouse #30, currently located at 4707 Belle-Oaks Drive, near Charlotte Douglas Airport is currently located in a house built in 1955 and needs extensive renovations. The facility is the only firehouse where crews must leave their living quarters to access their apparatus, as a result, impacting response time.
Firehouse #30 design services with use of Advance Planning funds will be utilized to build a replacement 3-bay 2-story firehouse to manage response volumes in the Beam Road/Airport area. The new facility will be approximately 14,000 square feet. The building will be located at 3019 Beam Road, directly across from Police and Fire Academy, and parcel ID number is 141-24-104. Located in Council District 3. The firehouse design will be the same floor plan design as Hidden Valley Firehouse #45 (HVFH#45). This project is also designated to be an all-electric firehouse and additional scope will be added to the project. An all-electric fire engine will also be acquired for this facility.
