Fire Station No. 5 and its twin, Fire Station No. 2, are located at opposite ends of Chalmette along W. Judge Perez Highway in St. Bernard Parish. Both are situated with the second floor cantilevered over the apparatus bays. These two stations also feature rolling shutters to signal to the community when the time for battening down and a possible evacuation from an impending weather event is at hand.
