SFD visits Addison Apartment Complex
Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Members of the Salisbury Fire Department are participating in the pre-planning of the Addison Apartment Complex located at North Pointe Plaza and Jazmine Dr (behind Tractor Supply and Target).  Personnel review the construction features, built-in suppression systems, hydrant locations, building layouts, water flow requirements, locations/sizes of water mains and branches, utilities locations, apparatus placement issues, EMS considerations, and other various aspects of fire and EMS delivery.  Upon completion, the complex will contain 300 living units in four (4) buildings, a clubhouse, several garages, and a pool area.  The project is estimated to be valued at over $30 million dollars and may prove to be very tactically challenging.

Units from the department often take time to review such projects in a proactive effort to acquire a better understanding of how to tactically address any possible future fire or EMS situations that may arise BEFORE they occur.  This process allows the SFD to provide more effective and efficient service to its constituents as well as to better provide for the safety of its personnel.
