Storage Solutions for Courageous Company

In a parade or on the job, most of us have been able to clearly identify the sights and sounds of our local fire truck from an early age. Time and time again, we’ve seen these dedicated individuals rushing toward a plume of smoke in the distance, ready to save the day.

One factor that helps responders accomplish such feats of bravery, is the efficiency of the facilities and equipment they utilize. To get from resting to ready in no time flat, these individuals need to know their gear is stored where and how it should be. This is where Spacesaver, our experienced experts, and our versatile lineup of storage solutions come into play.

Extinguishing Underutilized Spaces

Whether remodeling, expanding, or building a new facility, Spacesaver’s team of professionals understands how to best utilize the space at hand. Our Local Experts will take stock of your layout and current growth projections to determine how to best store your supplies in each area of the firehouse. Here are some common areas where our storage solutions can be implemented.

Gear Storage

While there is a set location for each individual’s gear in the building, this space is limited to only the pieces currently in use. However, as damage to gear is a common occurrence and leaves its user vulnerable to the elements of the job, spare equipment must be kept on hand.

Knowing this and just how bulky these items can be, departments can use a High-Density Mobile System to allow for maximum storage capacity of boots, jackets, helmets, gloves, and many more integral items.

When a call for help comes in, the station’s vehicle bay can become a whirlwind of activity. Having the necessary individuals and gear for the situation at hand and in the right location can be a matter of life and death, and no moment can be spared to search for materials.

With a mixture of Powered High-Density Mobile Systems and static shelving, Spacesaver can create a solution that allows responders to get in, get what they need, and get to distressed individuals as soon as possible.

Maintenance Storage

With multiple types of vehicles and gear stored at the station – each playing a pivotal role in maintaining the health and well-being of the public – staff must ensure all equipment remains in tip-top shape. This includes having a myriad of replacement parts and tools on hand and at the ready for getting the crew and their equipment back up and running.

Utilizing 4-Post shelving and FrameWRX bins, staff can store items of all shapes and sizes and know they will be where they need to be, when they need to be.

Office & PPE Supplies

While the actions of fire trucks and ambulances are a main focal point of the fire station, administrative functions play a key in the success of the facility. From holding an appropriate amount of PPE to preserving necessary records and accessories, maintaining a cohesive chain of information throughout your station provides tremendous support to its non-stop nature.

For maximizing the volume and accommodating the variety of materials needing to be stored, stations can use Spacesaver’s Mechanical Assist High-Density Mobile System. Fully configurable to fit boxes, bags, and cases of all sizes, each carriage can easily be moved at the turn of a handle.

Kitchen Storage

Having to be ready at any moment and working long hours don’t allow much time to take an extended break to eat. So, when staff members need to fuel up between calls, they want quick access to the supplies that help them get in, get fed, and get out.

To accommodate this need and keep each rotating shift’s food reserves safe and organized, Spacesaver’s 4-Post shelving with locking doors is perfect for your station’s pantry.

Lockers in the Sleeping Area

Because fires and other emergencies don’t follow a 9-to-5 schedule, station staff must be ready to go at all times. And, as their shifts tend to be longer than the normal human can function without sleep, a dedicated area for rest is necessary.

Each team member should have a secure space for their personal belongings while on the job or preparing to be, and your local Spacesaver representative can help design a solution to meet this need. Our trusted personal storage lockers are customizable to fit the specific needs of each department and its members, accounting for requirements ranging from ventilated shoe storage to integrated power for charging functionality.
