Under the first phase of the Earthquake Safety & Emergency Response (ESER) Bond, passed by voters in June 2010, neighborhood fire stations will receive needed seismic upgrades and other health & safety improvements. It is critical that our first responders are housed in healthy, safe and seismically sound facilities - thus providing essential emergency response services to people who need them during times of crisis.
The Earthquake Safety & Emergency Response Bond will seismically retrofit and make other necessary health & safety improvements to ensure that they are fully functional after a major earthquake.
Selection of neighborhood fire stations and improvements were based on the following guiding principles:
- Assure continuous fire protection coverage
- Prioritize emergency response
- Maximize the effectiveness of construction funds
- Limit disruption to operations
As construction beings, the fire stations under construction will be listed below and any change in service will be noted.
THERE ARE NO SCHEDULED FIRE STATION CLOSURES OR FIRE SERVICE CHANGES AT THIS TIME
