Environmental Assessment for Joplin Fire Department Proposed Fire Station No. 4, Joplin, MO (January 2013)

Main Content

The proposed Fire Station No. 4 is needed to provide effective and timely fire protection and emergency services to the south/central portion of the City of Joplin and surrounding municipalities. The original Fire Station No. 4 was destroyed by a tornado and replaced in the same location with a temporary facility which does not provide adequate quarters for assigned fire station personnel and weatherized shelter for the fire apparatus. The apparatus shelter (essentially a tent) cannot be adequately heated during the winter months and the fire department has struggled with maintaining the equipment in a constant state of readiness due to equipment freezing.  The proposed new fire station will replace an existing temporary facility (portable trailer and tent) that is inadequate for housing personnel and apparatus.  The Council on Environmental Quality was established under NEPA to implement and oversee Federal policy in this process and implemented the procedural provisions of NEPA codified at 40 CFR 1500-1508. An Environmental Assessment (EA) related to a FEMA program must be prepared according to the requirements of the Stafford Act and 44 CFR Part 10.
