areas in the southern part of the County is to consolidate the Goldvein and Lois facilities into a new one located around Morrisville. D. Site Location and Suitability Standards The following characteristics are essential to the location of future facilities: Close access to a major arterial road Controlled intersection Remote Opticom system for switching traffic lights to give priority in the intersection to the emergency vehicle Minimum 3-5 acre site depending on environmental conditions and need for on-site stormwater management Access to public water and sewer. The current stations being built are of a sufficient size to warrant fire suppression systems within the buildings. E. Priority Needs The recent construction of the four facilities discussed earlier represents Phase 1 of the Fire and Rescue Association’s plans for modernization of the facilities and infrastructure needed to serve Fauquier County citizens. Phase 2 of their plan includes replacement of the Orlean Fire and Rescue Station, renovation/major addition to The Plains Fire and Rescue Station, replacement or major renovation to the Upperville Fire and Rescue Station, and a new Bealeton Fire and Rescue Station. Of the Phase 2 improvement plans, the construction of a new Fire and Rescue Station in Bealeton is the most critical need, due to the increase in population, traffic and emergency calls within this area. A site for the Bealeton station was proffered as part of the “Freedom Place” development project located in the northwest quadrant of the intersection of Routes 17 and 28 in Bealeton. With the economic downturn, the Freedom Place project will not be constructed, and will likely be replaced by another development. As a future project moves forward, it is important for the County to continue to seek an appropriate site for a new station in this area. The training of fire and rescue personnel is an integral part of their mission. There are increasing challenges to providing adequate professional service. The more rapid fire dynamics of singlefamily homes today requires more firefighters working together as a team. Newer homes are larger and made of more synthetic materials, such as vinyl siding. The lightweight construction and contents of homes today have created a much higher degree of danger, as they burn much hotter and faster. These fire dynamics require better on-scene coordination and supervision with more complex communications. Preparing our firefighters for today’s level of performance requires repeated drills and the County currently does not have an appropriate burn facility for training. Construction and operation of this type of facility is a high priority for providing adequate training for the County’s volunteers and professional firefighters. The County recently considered two sites for the combined location of a fire training facility and shooting range for the Sheriff’s Office, one on County property on Green Road and another in conjunction with a private shooting range in Midland. A stand-alone fire training facility was approved on the Green Road site, adjoining the landfill. An appropriate location for a shooting range has yet to be identified.
