Fire Station 9 is a new fire station that was built by the city of Ontario. The 1.2-acre site is located in a new residential development in the southern portion of the city.
The station is designed to accommodate eight firefighters in an individual dormitory setting. A Jack and Jill-style toilet room/shower is incorporated into each dorm. Other station features include a three-bay, double-deep apparatus room, an administrative office, a kitchen, a dining room, a dayroom, a physical training room, a laundry room and various support spaces that are required for a facility of this type. Site features include visitor parking, secured firefighter parking, a hose tower and an above-grade fuel station.
Architecturally, the station is designed to present a more historical appearance. Plaster, brick veneer and precast concrete elements combine with traditional turn-of-the-century detailing. Sloped roof forms are used in conjunction with parapet areas to screen mechanical equipment.
