Fire Halls

Houma Fire Department


In late August 2021, Hurricane Ida made landfall in southern Louisiana and left a wave of destruction in its wake. A Category 4 storm, Ida is considered the fourth costliest Atlantic hurricane in the United States and the second most damaging hurricane in Louisiana—only Hurricane Katrina was more destructive.

Thanks to Hurricane Ida, the city of Houma, which sits just 10 feet above sea level, sustained significant damage, including the destruction of the Houma Fire Department’s Airbase Station. After a year and a half of navigating insurance policy claims and emergency relief grants, Houma FD turned to Sprung Structures to provide the community with a temporary, yet highly durable, fire station.


Designed to withstand winds of up to 160 miles per hour, the Sprung structure was delivered on-site just weeks after it was ordered. The original plan had been to anchor the structure to the ground, but as construction began it was quickly determined that the water table did not meet the required depth for this approach, so a perimeter concrete beam pad was installed instead.

Construction of the Houma Fire Department’s temporary fire hall took just days to complete. Measuring 60 feet by 60 feet, this versatile, modifiable structure can easily be re-purposed and relocated as the department’s needs evolve.
