A tour of the newest fire station for the South San Joaquin County (CA) Fire District was held on Saturday as Station 95 opened its doors for a public viewing, according to a report published by Tracy Press.

The newspaper reported that the $6.6 million station, which was paid mostly by developers’ fees, was the first new additional station to open in the district in the past 20 years.

During the event, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the public was allowed to tour the 7,065 square foot facility and saw the kitchen with separate refrigerators for each shift and the hot-warm-cold areas of the station, according to the newspaper.

By design, firefighters and equipment will enter the building on the west side of the building in the “hot” area for decontamination and then into the “warm” area where the trucks and gear are stored before heading into the cold zone where bedrooms, the kitchen and offices are located, the paper reported.

The new fire station is one of seven in the district which was formed in 1999 by a merger of Tracy Fire Department and Tracy Rural County Fire Protection District, according to the newspaper report.
