SAMFS, Fire Stations
Since 2002, when SA Metropolitan Fire Service initiated a program of upgrading fire stations throughout the metropolitan area, TRINAMIC Consultants have provided the consulting services for new fire stations at Elizabeth, Golden Grove, Beulah Park, Paradise and Seaford and most recently, the new major Command Fire Station at Salisbury.
Each new fire station included parking bays for two appliances, living quarters for fire fighters, gymnasium, control room, administration areas and community room. The stations have been designed for a 50 year minimum life cycle with minimal requirements for maintenance.
Each station features photovoltaic panels, solar hot water systems, water harvesting and recycling, and sophisticated integrated control systems that optimize lighting and air conditioning energy use by linking these services to the brigade fire alarm call-out system.
