Gresham Fire Response Ranger Station
With the new construction of several DNR Fire Response Ranger Stations throughout the state of Wisconsin, the goal of the DNR is to create a uniformity between their buildings.
The Gresham Fire Response Ranger Station was designed and constructed to accommodate the Department of Natural Resources Forestry and Fire Response Crews, both full time employees and limited term employees. This building was designed to combine three of the surrounding aging stations into one consolidated station. The station serves as both office space and emergency vehicle storage for the DNR. The station has also been carefully designed to incorporate an Incident Command Post (ICP) for the DNR’s use; when large-scale emergencies occur, this ICP becomes a home base for surrounding emergency services to operate from. The station includes meeting spaces, offices, a locker room, laundry and shower spaces, and ample storage space for emergency vehicles as well as work benches.
