The Genesee Emergency Services Facility, completed in 2019, is a state-of-the-art facility that meets the requirements of agencies and laws, including ADA and local and state-adopted building codes. This new 15,000 sf fire facility replaces the 120-year-old fire station that had reached its capacity, needed to be ADA-compliant, and needed to be bigger to accommodate emergency vehicles.
The new station includes fire department Headquarters, five double-deep drive-thru apparatus bays and related support functions, a kitchen, a decontamination room, and a community room providing space for training, meetings, and an emergency evacuation center for up to 200 people. The City of Genesee hopes the new station will help retain volunteers who can now spend their time helping people instead of working on a building.
Located in a quiet community nestled in the fertile rolling hills and prairie of Idaho’s Palouse country, this new facility is a testament to the city’s commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of its residents. With its modern amenities and advanced technology, the Genesee Emergency Services Facility is prepared to meet the needs of the community for years to come.
