Kensington (Aspen Hill) Fire Station #25 is an existing 12,000 square foot facility serving a densely populated area. This project provides for an additional 13,443 square feet for increased office and administrative space, dormitory space, living and dining areas, two new apparatus bays and associated storage areas. A renovation of the existing interior finishes and replacement of the heating/ventilation systems are also included in the project.

Growth in the Aspen Hill Area has increased demands on the existing fire station, which was constructed in 1988. The current facility lacks space for the number of firefighters assigned to this location, and needs additional space for the larger amount of fire apparatus needed at this station.

Plans and studies justifying the need for this station include the Fire, Rescue, Emergency Medical Services, and Community Risk Reduction Master Plan, October 2005 and the Station Location and Resource Allocation Study Report, September 2006.
