Fire station is a reflection of the past

Oswego Fire StationThe 4,000-square-foot (372-m2) Oswego Fire Station No. 1 in Oswego, Ill., which also houses the Oswego Fire Protection District's administrative offices, invokes a remembrance of fire stations of the past. Although the new station meets the District's current and future needs, the soaring bell tower, red doors and stone accent arches reflect the traditions of the fire service. Petersen Aluminum Corp., Elk Grove Village, Ill., supplied 24,000 square feet (2,230 m2) of PAC-CLAD 24-gauge 18-inch (457-mm) Snap-Clad panels finished in Burgundy, providing longevity and durability to the station. FGM Architects, Oak Brook, Ill., was the architect, and Sullivan Roofing, Schaumburg, Ill., was the roofing contractor.
