DEDICATION CEREMONY SLATED TO UNVEIL NEW FIRE STATION NEAR “TOP OF THE HILL”

Daly City Officials to Celebrate Opening of the State-of-the-Art Facility


Daly City – A dedication ceremony to formally open the City’s newest fire station is scheduled for 5:00 p.m., Thursday, October 28, 2004. The event will be held at Daly City Fire Station 92, located at 18 Bepler Street, just west of Mission Street near the heart of the City’s “Top of the Hill” district. Station 92 is home to the Daly City Fire Department’s Paramedic Engine Company 92 and Battalion 20. The new station replaces the former Station 92, an aging firehouse that served Daly City for more than 65 years.

The new fire station is a 7,600 square foot, two-story structure built to accommodate the crew and equipment of Engine Company 92, including living quarters that feature a commercial-style kitchen, dining room, lounge area, and exercise room. Although the state-of-the-art station is equipped with the latest technological innovations, it is also outfitted with a traditional brass fire pole that provides fast access from the second floor to the apparatus bay. The dedication ceremony will mark the official opening of the station that has been under construction for the past year and a half at a cost of $1.8 million.

Fire Station 92 is the busiest of Daly City’s five fire stations, handling an average volume of more than 2,000 emergency calls for service each year. Paramedic Engine Company 92 responds to approximately 30% of all fire emergency calls in the City. Most of the 9-1-1 calls dispatched to Station 92 involve medical emergencies.

Daly City’s City Council members are expected to join Fire Chief Ron Myers at the dedication ceremony. Personnel from the Daly City Fire Department will lead tours of the station following the unveiling of a commemorative plaque.
