The Firebaugh (CA) Fire Department recently broke ground on a new, larger station near P and 13th street, reports abc30.com. Concrete is expected to be poured next week to commence the $5 million project.
Officials say this will be the first new station in 73 years, though renovations were made to it in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’80s. Now with more firefighters and larger apparatus, the department has outgrown it.
The new digs will have complete living quarters, a dormitory, living room, kitchen, and kitchen facilities.
The work is funded by the Community Development Block Grant, and the station is slated to be complete by March 2022.
