Evolution of Lego Twp Fire Headquarters
Here are my first tries at building firehouses. I eventually changed them due to size constraints with the apparatus and looks. What better firehouse to start with than Fire HQ....
About this creation
The old Fire HQ had 3 pieces plus a chiefs vehicle. The 4th bay was added and supposed to be for the chief's car, but instead I saw a need for a spare engine. Engine 11 was that spare engine...until I decided to grow the department. So in all, the Chief's car STILL sits outside.


The back side of the firehouse was open, Lego style (no rear wall). The aerial would hang out the rear. Plus, the other firehouses were starting to look better than HQ. I believe that Fire HQ should look the best. The hunt was on. I looked at numerous firehouses. Finally, I found this firehouse in Foster City, California:



I liked the colors and the style. So, I built this:

Quoting 19FireRescue84 Station 23 Hi bob, I'm a fan of Lego fire stations yours and Tom Ds are very impressive. My plan is to build 7-8 stations with vehicles and try to build an inside. Have you any advice on building my stations?. Graeme Nifr
Wow, Graeme! I'm sorry I did not reply to this earlier. I just saw it now. To answer your question, I'd say, be patient. It takes a while to figure out how you wish your firehouse would look. Sometimes, you will need to look long and hard to find the design you like. If you don't have an idea as to how you want your fire houses to look, then look around at the architecture around you. See if there are any features that you like. Take a look at other firehouses and see if there is something that you'd like to build, whether its the entire station or part of the station. Just because a station may have more apparatus bays than you need does not mean you can not still build it. Just change it to suit your needs. Lego does not always build the bricks we need. So you'll need to adapt. It will take time to get your ideas and build it. Just be patient. : )

Quoting chris ballder Bob I was wondering if you could post some pics INSIDE of your station one on brickshelf. -chris
Actually, without ripping apart the roof, I cannot. The rooms are not furnished anyway....with the exception of the museum on the first floor, some rear offices with just a desk, chair and computer, and the dispatch area. Even then, I'd have to dismantle part of the building to take pics of the museum.

Quoting Karl E My first impression of the HQ was really cool, but then the "so I built this" new HQ....awesome station! I really like the design of the station. Any inside details? Great work again!
I can tell you that the 1st floor has the FD museum with the 1978 "Emergency Van" set from Lego, some old turnout geat, a diaphone, a fire alarm box and some tools. The offices above are furnished except for the front conference room. The 9-1-1 dispatch center is fully furnished with computers, telephone, desk, dispatchers and the Form 4 and Digitize unit for the fire alarm boxes. The kitchen and dorm areas need furnishing.
