Significance: The base Fire Station and Guard House initially provided fire rescue service to the entire base and air field and had a guard house with cells in the rear. During the 1950s, the interior was converted to security offices and the front bays enclosed with modern doors and windows. Although this alteration has changed the historic appearance of the building to some extent, it still retains the general appearance of a firehouse and many other exterior features remain unaltered.
