Temporary Fire Station Closure & Service Status

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.
