Wedgwood - Station 40
About the Station
Station 40 houses one engine company (E40) and one reserve engine.
As one of the newer stations in the system, Station 40 is in generally fair condition, but requires some minor seismic retrofits to meet current earthquake safety standards.
About the Project
As a seismic and safety upgrade station, Station 40 requires additional seismic bracing to meet current earthquake safety codes.
No additional floor space is planned for this station, but interior remodeling will convert the existing multipurpose room into an apparatus bay support area, providing decontamination equipment and crew preparation and vehicle maintenance functions. In addition, the physical training room in the station's basement will be remodeled and the existing watch office will be converted into a station office and lobby that will offer improved operations and security. These actions will displace some crew areas, so the remodel will include a reconfiguration of bunk and living space.
Station 40 will continue to house two apparatus.
Emergency services are expected to remain on site while the station is being upgraded.
