DGS, the Mayor’s Office, City’s Solicitors Office, Fire Department, and local leaders in the business and philanthropic community worked in collaboration to renovate 17 firehouse kitchens. The kitchen renovations provide new, modern kitchens to Fire Department members, helping provide well-balanced, healthy meals throughout their shift. The project was broken into 5 phases with 3-4 firehouses being completed in each phase. DGS designed each kitchen in-house, prepared the sites, bid and procured contractors, and members of the Fire Department performed demolition and painting to reduce costs on the renovations. Each Firehouse kitchen site took an average of 65 days to renovate.
