The Project involves construction of a new 12,000 square foot two-story fire station for the Alameda County Fire Department. The new fire station would replace the existing seismically unsafe and outmoded Station 23 located approximately one block south of the Project site. The new fire station would house a single engine company with a core crew of three persons per shift. Spaces within the building would include two apparatus bays, a workshop, an exercise room, office areas, crew and Captain’s sleeping rooms and associated day-room, kitchen, and a meeting room.
The Project also includes the potential for the proposed meeting room to be re-purposed and to function as a limited scope neighborhood health clinic staffed by three full-time personnel, including a mid- level practitioner, a Fire Paramedic, and a care coordinator. The Project would include 8 parking spaces for fire personnel and 7 parking spaces for use by the public and health clinic personnel.
