Document Description
Cal Fire is proposing to relocate existing fire station facilities, located along Hot Springs Road west of the community of California Hot Springs, to a new site located immediately southwest of the intersection of Hot Springs Road and Old Hot Springs Road in Tulare County, California. The project includes the construction of new fire station facilities at the project site. The purpose of this project is to provide new buildings and support facilities that will meet the current building codes and have adequate space for future operations, serving southern Tulare County and the southern Sierra Nevada. The proposed project site for the relocated facilities is a parcel ~5 acres. Facilities will include a 3134 sf barracks/mess hall; a 1664 sf apparatus building with generator, transfer switch, and fuel supply; a 1000 gallon fuel vault with cover and fueling equipment; a 1000 sf vehicle wash rack with treatment and recycling equipment; a water system including a well, 10,000 gallon domestic storage tank, 40,000 gallon fire water tank, and pressure distribution system; a septic tank and leach field; all utilities; and site work including grading, paving, drainage, fencing, landscaping, sidewalks, curbs, and all appurtenances.
