Gold, silver, and bronze awards have been distributed across seven categories: volunteer departments, combination departments, career departments, satellite stations, shared-facilities, training facilities and renovated fire stations.  All participating entries will be published in the November issue of Fire Chief.

"There have been significant changes in fire and emergency facilities over the 13 years of Design Awards," said Janet Wilmoth, associate publisher of Fire Chief magazine. "Not only have the winning stations reflected the changing role of fire departments across the country, but fire sprinklers in these facilities, meeting rooms for the community and fitness areas have become routine fire department facilities. There is also significant increase in environmental awareness in fire departments. These exciting facilities support the demand for quicker response times, the integration of diversity into stations and an added focus on firefighter health and safety."

Winners have been selected by a panel of six judges including one fire chief, one firefighter/architect and four architects. The winning entries are as follows:
