Lego Twp. Fire Dept. Fire Academy
This is the Lego Twp Fire Academy, formerly Lego Hills Fire Station 2 and LTFD Station 9. The station was originally built by Jason Price. The firehouse has gone through extensive interior renovations as well as improvements to the exterior and a complete tear down and rebuild of the academy offices. The firehouse and apparatus from Lego Hills was purchased from Jason when he shut down and sold off his fire station creations. The apparatus was refurbished by Pierce and became LTFD Engine 12, Tower Ladder 5 and Rescue 3. Soon after, a new firehouse for Station 9 was built and new apparatus was purchased. The old apparauts from Lego Hills was moved to reserve status and training apparatus.
About this creation

This is the fire academy after renovations. The firehouse received an entire demolition of the interior on the second floor and built two new classrooms. The archway for the apparatus was increased 1 brick higher and a new, stable roof built. The academy offices on the left side of the campus was torn down and a new structure built. The smoke house and tower was gutted on the interior and remodeled.


Lego Twp had the Lego Hills Station 2 sign refinished, and remounted the sign on a new base with new lighting as a way of preserving the history of the firehouse.


Here is the front of the academy. New lighting was installed between the apparatus bays. The firehouse also received 4 new bay doors, 3 in the front and a new, realigned drive through bay garage door to the rear of the firehouse. In addition a new, non-slippery apparatus floor was poured.


View of the new office area. This building was torn down and rebuilt. The second floor is accessible from here. The first floor is the receptionist area and the second floor is the academy chief's office.


View of the rear of the academy. Here, you can see the telegraph fire alarm circuit setup for training purposes.


View of the rear of the academy, looking at the entrances to the firehouse, classroom and smokehouse/tower.

Entrance to the smokehouse and classrooms.


Through the door brings you to the classrooms and monitoring area, across the enclosed foot bridge.


View of the academy from the A-D side. Note the master fire alarm box on the building is tied in to the municipal fire alarm circuit and not the training circuit. So, if that box is activated, the Lego Twp FD will be responding to the box, whereas any of the training boxes are local to the academy and will not result in a response from the LTFD.

Quoting John Drake I understand what I have done, I will not do what has been done before. I am sorry for my actions and understand you have given me many chances before, you have humbled me Bob, you are my greatest example and for you to go and crush my own dream? Great example you have been setting maybe me and Zak should go and create or own group.
Oh, cry me a river. The only person who crushed your dream is yourself. You think you are all high and almighty. You never listened to the many warnings people have given you. You take it upon yourself to go around and push people around, forcing them to shut down their group. You mouth off to people. And you have the audaity to be upset with me? Most of the people in County 60 Command are very upset with you. The mods have discussed you and unanimously agreed that you are to be suspended. So, stop blaming other people. The only one at fault is YOU! I'll be more than happy to continue this discussion privately. You have my email address.

Quoting Lee Crowder Everything looks great, Bob! I love it. You should really start posting detailed pictures of some of your stations, I think that would be very cool and very inspiring! -Lee
Thanks Lee! Many of the firehosues do not have finished interiors. Yes, there are walls creating rooms and doors, but no furniture or tiles for flooring. If there is anything in particular you want to see, let me know. One thing I've been considering is to mave the firehouses modular, so you can remove the second floor and see the interiors. Currently, they are old school style, except with 4 walls instead of three.

Quoting Paulo Rodriguez This is AMAZING i have seen this on your site but dint know it looked this good great job lots of detail could you post detailed pics like this with your HQ fire station (if its still built)i have alway's wondered what it looked like since you only get a couple of angles on your website again very well built 5/5- Paulo
Thanks Paulo! I had to replace many bricks. In the original building, there were MegaBlocks mixed in it. Many bricks were scraped, chipped, dirty and even had a few MegaBlocks mixed in. The stairs at the rear of the building were only 2 studs wide. So, I bought some new bricks, changed the interior, rebuilt the little building to the left side, and replaced the roofs. I put a lot of money into fixing it up. Here is a link to what the place used to look like when Jason had it: http://web.archive.org/web/20041129002423/lhfire.com/station2.htm

What? No rating Matt? ;) Anyway, I do have plans to do updates to the LTFD site. Just need time to do so. As I said to Collin, I'm doing a segment on the latest class of recruits to the LTFD. Stay tuned! :)
