Steam Heat for the Station
The steam heat produced by large oil fired boilers in this building kept employees and detainees warm on chilly days. Steam was also piped to the commercial kitchen for cooking. The building also housed an incinerator that burned garbage and a laundry facility that served the Hospital. For fire safety, the Central Heating Plant was built from concrete, the only structure at the Immigration Station for which this precaution was taken.

车站蒸汽热 这座大楼里的大型燃油锅炉产生的蒸汽热量让员工和被拘留者在寒冷的日子里保持温暖。蒸汽也被输送到商业厨房进行烹饪。该建筑还设有一个焚烧垃圾的焚化炉和一个为医院服务的洗衣设施。为了消防安全,中央供暖厂是用混凝土建造的,这是移民站唯一采取这种预防措施的结构。 Chēzhn
