The vision of this project is to create an essential fire service and community complex that enhances public safety, emergency response, job training and access to community amenities. The complex must thoughtfully integrate Fire Station No. 29 and co-locate other Oakland Fire Department facilities while providing a welcoming community facility that is universally accessible and visible to the public.
Existing Fire Station No. 29 located at 1016 66th Avenue does not serve the current and anticipated operational and community needs. Oakland proposes to locate a new station one block away at 905 66th Avenue. The new facility is funded by Measure KK and will be the first phase to be fully designed and constructed with anticipated completion by the end of 2025. The new Fire Station will include a community room and classroom.
The Master Plan will look toward the future to develop a strategy that benefits all by addressing the needs of the first responders and needs of the community. The fire safety and training facilities proposed include relocation of the obsolete OFD fire training facilities, fire training classrooms, Support Services Division and the Urban Search and Rescue Task Force #4 (USAR) Warehouse. A portion of the site will be dedicated to a community-oriented business or facility to be determined through an inclusive planning and community engagement process.
Dates and locations of community meetings will be announced soon. Please check back.
