About the Station
Station 14 houses one ladder unit and an aid unit. The station is also home to the department's Technical Rescue Team which helps mitigate dive, confined space, rope, trench, tunnel and heavy rescue incidents.

In 2005, this station received landmark designation. Read the landmark nomination report: Part 1 and Part 2.

Station Improvements
Bassetti Architects is designing the addition, interior renovations and seismic upgrades for the station.

Improvements will include:

  • An addition to the north side of the existing station that will provide one additional apparatus bay
  • Improved decontamination, dive gear and bunker gear storage facilities
  • Renovated administration and living areas
  • Improved mechanical and electrical systems

Temporary Relocation
During construction, the station was relocated to an interim facility near the current site to ensure continued fire and medic response to the neighborhood served by Fire Station 14.

Current Status
