Guilford County Emergency Services has revolutionized how it stocks, maintains, cleans, stores, and deploys its units with its new facility located on ten acres at 1205 Pepperstone Drive in Greensboro. The facility includes three buildings and a fuel island and has increased the warehouse and equipment space by tenfold over the old, antiquated location. It serves as a hub for receiving and distributing supplies during disasters and emergencies. It offers many amenities to staff and personnel, such as administrative offices, a gymnasium, showers, locker rooms, a break room, and a warehouse.
The Vehicle Maintenance Facility (VMF), which is 11,913 square feet, features five vehicle maintenance work bays, an administrative office, and warehousing with 2,095 SF of storage space on the mezzanine.
The Vehicle Decontamination Facility (VDF) is 5,000 SF and serves all the vehicles housed in the facility. The site also contains a complete stormwater drainage system, a two-bay Biocell, vehicular parking, and a four-pump vehicle fueling facility providing diesel and gasoline with above-ground storage tanks and a diesel fuel-powered emergency power generator. The new facility provides the County with a state-of-the-art resource for emergency services and is a great asset to the community.
