Update on Repairs to Fire Station 15
Fire Chief Fry provided background of the damage sustained to Fire Station 15 in September 2011 as an engine was exiting in response to an emergency. He explained that the incident caused minor damage to the engine and major structural damage to the fire station. He clarified that the damage has not had any impact on emergency responses. The damage resulted in a need for a temporary structural support wall to support the roof. He stated that prior foundation issues are causing concern and explained that a preliminary soils report shows significant potential problems. He further explained that all efforts are being made to bring the building up to current construction codes to ensure its stability as an Essential Services Facility.
In response to Director questions, Fire Chief Fry stated that insurance funds will cover the cost of repairs to the building but it is unclear what the cost will be to bring the building to current code standards.
