The new station provides administrative space for Gainesville Fire & Rescue, as well as the latest building technology. The new station is located prominently in downtown Gainesville and anchors the north end of South Main Street, which is being actively redeveloped. The station serves as a prominent node in the city, blending traditional materials with modern lines. The station was selected for a City Beautification Award in 2019, and selected for a Career 1 Notable award by Firehouse Magazine. Integrated training facilities, and room for future growth will ensure Station 1 serves for many decades to come.
