This project provides partial funding for the renovation and enhancement of Rockville Fire Station 3, which was constructed in 1965. The scope of work includes: structural repairs; ADA accessibility improvements; an addition to increase living and bunk space; maintenance bay reconfiguration and conversion to locker area; and improvements in kitchen, living area, administrative area, and bunk rooms. Other facility repairs include replacement of the existing roof and paved parking lot surface. The enhanced station will be built on the existing Station 3 site.

The present facility does not comply with current building or ADA code requirements for fire suppression sprinklers, HVAC and electrical systems, personnel living quarters, and work space. The consulting structural engineer recommended that a complete renovation to the existing facility would be more cost effective in the long-run than multi-year partial repairs. Architectural plans have been submitted and approved by the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department (RVFD) Board of Directors.


The total project cost is expected to be $5,478,000. This PDF reflects a one-time County contribution of $500,000 for this project. The remaining expenditures will be mostly funded with non-tax funds provided by the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department (RVFD). Partial funding may also be provided through the State of Maryland Senator William H. Amoss Fire, Rescue, and Ambulance fund. The RVFD developed cost estimates for this project through an independent cost estimator. The RVFD will be the contract manager for this project.
