River Islands (CA) Celebrates Fire Station

But as the City of Lathrop continues to grow by leaps and bounds – with the majority of that residential growth focused in River Islands and on land west of I-5 – the construction of a fire station to serve that community and house the district’s administrative offices represented the dawning of a new era for the agency. 

 Station 35 will be the second in the district that was constructed to be able to accommodate two full crews working simultaneously – the first being Station 34 which serves the Mossdale development and the new residential and commercial growth around Lathrop City Hall. 

But when it’s fully staffed – which could take up to five years depending on whether the rate of growth in River Islands is sustained – the new station will operate both an engine and a truck company to meet the demand.
