Jacinto City is planning to upgrade their current fire station, with a renovation of the existing building and adding space for personnel and equipment.
In November, City Council approved a contract with the architectural firm Hoffman-Liu Design Associates and TDCK Architects, Inc., to draw plans for the work.
According to the contract, an addition to the north side of the existing building will be built. It will be two stories, approximately 32 x 60 feet for a total of 3840 square feet of new space.
The architect has entered into preliminary discussions with the city and the fire department, to determine details of their needs.
The new addition will include a Day Room/Training Room, 2 offices for captains, a chief ’s office, EMS supply storage, firemen’s gear storage, kitchen, an interview or isolation room, and toilets and stairs on the first floor. An enclosed outdoor patio will be off the day room.
On the second floor, there will be bunk rooms for 6 firemen, and lockers, laundry, showers and toilets. Facilities will be provided for both men and women fire personnel.
