LEDtronics LED Wall-Paks illuminate the four bay doors at the fire station at Camp Humphreys in South Korea. The rest of the building is lit with 250W HPS (amber glow). The United States Army Garrison Humphreys in South Korea was known as a quiet post for years. However recent events in North Korea have tensed North Korea’s relationship with the United States. This led to the decision to relocate all of the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) south of Seoul. Camp Humphreys will be home to the (USFK) by 2012.
Camp Humphreys is located in Pyeongtaek, Korea, about 55 miles south of Seoul. It is home to the 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade of the 2nd Infantry Division, military intelligence units and several other military organizations. It is reportedly undergoing one of the largest transformations in the history of the Army; these vast changes will provide better accommodations and services to U.S. military members and their families.
While not officially part of those strategic changes, when the Fire and Emergency Services of the Directorate of Emergency Services decided to replace some of the lights on its headquarters, adopting forward-looking LED technology was the sensible direction to take. Today, four LEDtronics WWL20 Wall-Paks illuminate the front of the firehouse building using only 56 Watts each (seen in the right side of the accompanying photo), while the rest of the edifice is lit by 250-Watt HPS Wall-Paks.
