East Visali VFD will move out of shared accommodations with Cal Fire and move to a new fire station, reports Visalia Times Delta.
In 2006, the city leased an engine bay and one building for the firefighters’ living quarters. Those quarters have become cramped and the bay no longer fits the department’s current engines. A lot that will likely be used for the future fire station was purchased for $294,000.
Staffing levels will remain the same between the current station and the planned new station, as will response times.
