Fire District Plans to Build New Station in Woodside
The Woodside-Portola Valley Fire Protection Foundation is excited to work with the Woodside Fire Protection District on a new headquarters facility that will meet the needs of our community in the decades ahead. To say that the fire district has outgrown the current 65-year-old Station 7 is an understatement.
Built in 1949 and remodeled in 1993, the current construction type does not allow for seismic upgrades. The new station will meet state building codes, OSHA, and National Fire Protection Agency standards.
As our community values its environmental and historic heritage with architectural guidelines that help maintain the rural ambiance, the fire district is naturally taking this into consideration in the appearance and size of the new station. The fire district values its partnership with the community and all of its neighbors.
This project is in the early planning stages. More information will be available from the fire district in the months ahead.
Funding for the new station will come from the fire district capital reserve, a loan, and private fundraising through the foundation. The Woodside-Portola Valley Fire Protection Foundation is grateful for and counts on the continuing generous support of our community residents and business.
