The bench is located on the eastside of the station, and was created by sculptor Austin Weishel and fabricator Tim Driscoll, both West Metro Firefighters, picked by former Station 1 captain Travis Hopwood to build the bench featuring custom bronze work. The bench is a collaboration between the City of Lakewood and West Metro Fire Rescue, with funding provided by the Neighborhood Participation Program and was dedicated on June 24th 2016.
