Document Description
This project will consist of various improvements to the Skull Creek Forest Fire Station, a remote station in Tuolumne County. An approx. 4-foot wide sidewalk will be constructed around the perimeter of the existing barracks and apparatus bay. The existing cement helipad will be expanded 6 to 8 feet in each direction. The existing fuel tank location will be improved by constructing an approx. 30 foot by 20 foot cement fuel slab with steel cover. The steel cover with be approx. 20 feet in height, and supported with four pillars. Water is supplied to the station via two poly tanks with wood coverings to project the ranks from snow loading. The existing wood covers are deteriorating. The project will either replace the existing wood coverings with similar woods coverings, or replace the poly tanks with cement tanks that would not require a cover.
