Engine Company 27 & Fleet Ready Reserve
The District of Columbia Engine Co. 27 and Fleet Ready Buildings consist of a 2 bay, 9,300 SF, two story fire station and two fleet ready buildings with drive-through bays. The stations compact design provides crew quarters for 10 firefighter/EMT’s, and a large kitchen and sitting area that opens to an adjacent covered outdoor patio.

The fleet ready buildings house the department’s reserve fleet of 6 tiller/ladder trucks, 16 engine/pumpers, and 9 EMS vehicles and feature vegetative roofs as an integral strategy for storm water management.
