Emergency Services District #28 is in the midst of designing a replacement fire station #63 on Imperial Valley. If all goes well, we could begin demolition of the existing fire station this summer. This station is now staffed weekdays by paid firefighters and supplemented by our volunteer force. The existing fire station was originally built in 1993 on donated land. The fire station complex has been a continual work in progress since its inception. The 50 x 70 metal building was built in 1993; it was expanded 21 feet to the south in 2001 to accommodate a couple of bedrooms, a work shop, physical fitness room and a large meeting room upstairs. This was in conjunction with building the 4 story training tower with live burn capabilities.
A federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant was successful in 2005 and “clean burn” LPG burn props were purchased (a kitchen and a bedroom). During this upgrade the training tower was expanded for more capabilities. After that a shed was added behind the fire station, and later another shed was built to accommodate the breathing apparatus confidence building maze. The training area portion of the property will continue and a replacement shed will be built at the rear/west end of the property since the other shed mentioned above will be demolished.
This is the third project that BRW Architects have performed for ESD28. Station 62 on Louetta 2010-11, Station 61 HQ on Rolling Creek remodel in 2013. LDF Construction was the contractor for the first two projects.
