The Norwalk, Conn., Fire Department has been the recipient of the GOLD AWARD by Firehouse Magazine for outstanding architecture and fire station design for their new Headquarters Station. Utilizing the latest fire station design technology and current regulatory requirements the department has set the standard for new station design.
The Air Vacuum Corporation was selected to provide the latest technology for exhaust removal systems in providing a clean and healthy environment for personnel. The Airvac 911 exhaust removal system was designed exclusively for the environment created by apparatus diesel exhaust to remove the exposure by station personnel.
Utilizing the latest filtration technology, the Airvac 911 system automatically removes both diesel particulates and gasses that the World Health Organization has declared as known carcinogens. In compliance with regulatory standards the Airvac 911 system meets or exceeds industry standards including NFPA, OSHA, NIOSH and community environmental “green” requirements. In conjunction with station architects, Pacheco Ross Architects, the design of the exhaust removal system was tailored to the design, location and equipment at the new Norwalk station.
The Air Vacuum Corporation congratulates the Norwalk Fire Department in serving their community with their new fire station.
