At the U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys in the Republic of Korea, LEDtronics LED Wall-Paks now illuminate the four bay doors (at right) of the fire station, while the rest of the building is lit with 250W HPS (amber glow).

For years, United States Army Garrison Humphreys in the Republic of Korea was known as a very quiet and small post, but with the decision to relocate all of U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) south of Seoul, that image is rapidly changing. By 2012, Camp Humphreys will be the new home of USFK.

Located in Pyeongtaek, Korea, about 55 miles south of Seoul, USAG Humphreys is home to the 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade of the 2nd Infantry Division, Military Intelligence units and several other military organizations. It is 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 W each (seen in the right side of the photo), while the rest of the edifice is lit by 250 W HPS Wall-Paks.
