Located outside the Hazard Zone of the refinery at Hazira, the Central Fire Station is spread over 2 Levels & Houses the Fire and Security Departments.
The Design Brief specified separation of the 2 departments.
A double height lobby which serves as a common entrance. The Control Rooms of the 2 Departments are stacked above each other for ease of services & are visible through the double height lobby.
The Ground Floor is occupied by the Fire department's crew and their allied stores / workshop. At the first floor segregation between the 2 departments is achieved by locating the shared facilities - meeting rooms, pantries & toilets in the centre, with the fire department occupying one end of the floor and the security department the other.
