Long Description:
The Sebring Fire Station was built in 1927. It is a two story art deco style brick building with a distinctive tower. It was designed by William Heim. The station's official name is the City of Sebring Fire Department Central Station. It is located two blocks northeast of Sebring Circle.

The building was renovated 2004-2010 due to damage from hurricanes Charlie, Frances, and Jeanne. It was rededicated in 2010 and remains an active fire station today.

There are two plaques on the north wall (facing Mango St): one for the station being on the NRHP and the other for the 2010 rededication.
