Project Overview

Firehouse #30, located at 4707 Belle-Oaks Drive near Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, occupies a house that was built in 1955 and needs extensive renovation. This firehouse was originally designed and intended to be a temporary facility and is not adequate to continue functioning as a permanent facility.
The existing firehouse will be replaced with a new three-bay, two-story, all-electric firehouse to manage response volumes in the Beam Road/airport area. The new facility will be located on a three-acre site at 3019 Beam Road, across the street from the Police and Fire Training Academy. It will provide adequate living quarters for firefighters and equipment, which will improve response time to calls. The 14,000-square-foot facility will also house a new all-electric fire truck to serve the community.
