Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Squad
Client: Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Squad | Location: Clayton, NY | Completion Date: 2016 | Services Provided: Architectural, Structural Engineering, Land Surveying
Since its founding in 2001, The Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Squad (TIERS) has had the vision of owning a building that would meet the needs of a modern emergency medical services agency.
Aubertine and Currier was selected to design a new 8,000 sf modern facility for the medical services agency which provides the highest level of professional emergency medical care available in the region with on-duty paramedic level responders available 24/7. The agency has received recognition for its high quality emergency care and innovation, and is a past recipient of the prestigious Emergency Medical Services Agency of the Year Award from the NYS Department of Health.
Working closely with the members from TIERS, the architecture department created a design to meet the functional needs of the staff and volunteers and a design that blends in well with the local Clayton community and will serve as the headquarters for TIERS well into the future. The new facility has a Pre-engineered Steel Structure garage area allowing TIERS to comfortably fit four ambulances and one fly car inside the building, as well as a decontamination room and a room for O2 storage. The wood framed office and administration section of the building will house a reception area, offices for the executive director/EMS chief and operations chief, three bunk rooms, a data/communications office, large training room, an on-duty lounge and kitchen with dining area.
