Richland Fire and Emergency Services completed its 10,350-square-foot Fire Station 73 in late October.
The new station on Jadwin Avenue is a twin to Fire Station 75, which opened in September on Battelle Boulevard in north Richland.
The station at 2120 Jadwin Ave. includes living quarters for up to four firefighters, administrative space for both fire and police and four apparatus bays.
It has one story and was built with masonry block, exposed beams and a metal exterior. It cost about $4.5 million. The station is staffed with a minimum of three firefighters, one fire engine and an ambulance.
DGR Grant was the general contractor.
The design team consisted of Architects West of Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, Perlman Architects in Arizona and AHBL in Washington.
