The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection proposes to install a training tower, a carport, and gravel parking lot at the Porterville Fire Station. The environmental setting is annual grassland, with non-native trees plants around the station, and a riparian corridor along the Campbell-Moreland Ditch 300 ft to the north. The location of the work is within the developed area of the station grounds, where excavation and grading has occurred in the past, leaving little native vegetation or soil development. The training tower will be 30ft tall by 36ft wide on a concrete slab (44 x 40) with 36 ft long anchors for additional structural support. An open field adjacent to the fire station will have gravel parking lot installed. Prior to laying new concrete, the existing pavement will be demolished and removed, and the ground will be leveled. Gravel will be installed in an open lot adjacent to the Porterville fire station to serve as parking for training classes at the tower. A concrete slab will be installed for a carport to house a dozer transport and dozer. The concrete slab will be approximately 75 ft x 25 ft with anchors for the carport. Work will take approximately two to three months to complete.
