For anyone associated with Emergency Services in Guilford County, they will say that this project was a LONG time coming. To put this into perspective, Emergency Services has desperately needed them to better serve the community over the past two decades.

After the county and emergency personnel expressed the necessity of this project at the turn of the century, it is finally operational. On Tuesday, October 20, the groundbreaking ceremony was held with Guilford County Emergency Services, Guilford County Commissioners and many other members of the local community.

The facility has revolutionized how Guilford County Emergency Services units are stocked, maintained, cleaned, stored, and deployed. Over the old, antiquated location, the warehouse and equipment space increased by ten. The new facility serves as a hub for receiving and distributing supplies during disasters and emergencies.

Guilford County Emergency Services Facility is located at 1205 Pepperstone Drive in Greensboro, 52,229 SF, and is located on 10 acres. Three buildings and a fuel island are serving the county's emergency vehicles.

The Ambulance Bay Building (ABB) is 40,316 square feet and is a staff processing and training facility with administrative offices, a gymnasium, showers, locker rooms, a break room, and a warehouse.

Vehicle Maintenance Facility (VMF) is 11,913 SF with five vehicle maintenance work bays, an administrative office, and warehousing. The building also features 2,095 SF of storage space on the mezzanine.

Vehicle Decontamination Facility (VDF) is 5,000 SF serves all the vehicles housed in the facility.

The site contains a complete stormwater drainage system, a 2-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.
