Registration Opens for 2017 Station Design Conference in Fort Worth

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017, 7:42 pm

Registration is now available for the 2017 Station Design Conference, which will be held May 3-5, 2017, at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex in Fort Worth, Texas. This three-day conference was created to help save your department time and reduce

costly errors with a new fire station.

The Station Design Conference is focused on best practices and design innovations for your fire department’s new facility. The

conference is designed for public safety officials and municipal leaders who are responsible for fire department facilities, from initial concept through construction. Presentations are by award-winning architects and fire department personnel experienced in creating new fire stations and public safety facilities.

On Wednesday, May 3, the popular “1-on-One” preconference program will offer fire department attendees the opportunity to meet individually with award-winning architects to review and discuss their new fire station or public safety facility projects. This session offers an objective, third-party review that can save time and costly errors as you plan your next station. This unique program is limited to fire department personnel and administrators.

The General Session on Thursday, May 4, will begin with an overview of the journey to a new fire station and how to gain support from your community. Our presenters will provide a walk through of the process of programming, reveal secrets of bidding/construction and explain how to determine the best site.

Case studies will offer lessons learned and share how to avoid costly errors and omissions. Finally, learn to design a safe, healthy fire station to reduce carcinogen and contaminant exposure to your firefighters/EMS personnel and staff.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all registered attendees.

“We think the Station Design Conference at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex in Fort Worth is an excellent choice for this year,” said Janet Wilmoth, conference director. “Not only is the training facility an excellent example of a renovated, state-of-the-art facility, but it will offer more educational programs and networking opportunities.”
