Document Description
There are two residence located at CAL FIRE's San Diego Unit Headquarters (MVU) also known as Monte Vista Headquarters. These state residences were built in the mid 1960's and were used as state employee housing. No longer used as state housing, these buildings are now used as office space. The Fire Prevention Bureau occupies one of the buildings and the Pre-Fire/Resource Management Division occupies the other building. More than fifteen years ago, the Fire Prevention Bureau converted the garage into a large meeting room/office space. This project intends to apply a similar floor plan concept and convert the garage in Pre-Fire/Resource Management Division building into a large meeting room/office space. This meeting room/office space also intends to provide GIS/mapping support for large incidents.
