As part of its annual FY 2021-2022 budget, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors have approved the installation of a 140-foot radio tower for at the location of Tulare Fire Station #25. This project involves the actual construction of the radio tower that will sit on an 18'x 18' concrete pad along the existing parking lot area in the northwest portion of the property along with an outdoor equipment closet for weather proofed cabinet for the radio equipment that is 62" x 59" x 42". The project scope consists of removing existing lawn and asphalt, installation of the site pad, raising of the tower, adding the equipment closet, and then connecting an electrical conduit between this equipment closet and the tower, to the existing Fire Department structure. The modifications to the site will be set back beyond 200 feet from the Foster Drive entrance to the facility, thereby reducing potential visibility from the street. The limits for the tower project are within the existing confines of the existing Fire Station parking lot, drainage will be confined on-site, and will not impact any areas not currently covered by concrete. The radio tower will enhance the county's existing communications network thereby providing a public benefit by enhancing first responder capabilities.
