The Santa Clara County (CA) Fire Department recently broke ground on a new station in the Redwood Estates Area. The new digs will cover about 21 square miles along Highway 17—including Redwood Estates, Aldercroft Heights, and Chemeketa Park.
The existing station will be demolished in the coming weeks, and the new one will be built on the same site. Construction is set to conclude 4Q22.
“We are pleased to be investing in providing the best service to our Santa Cruz Mountains community as we continue to face unprecedented wildfire hazards,” Brian Glass, Acting Fire Chief, said in a press release. “This new facility replaces the existing fire station built in 1979. It will enable more efficient and flexible service beginning in 2022, and decades into the future.”
