The new Buena Park Fire Station No. 61 opened this week to its three dozen firefighters and Orange County Fire Authority battalion and Division 7 administration. The $13 million station’s three apparatus bays feature quick-opening bi-fold doors and a signal interrupter which changes all intersection signals to red, both of which will help crews respond quickly to emergencies. The 18,000-square-foot building includes dormitory sleeping quarters, a kitchen and workout room, as well as training rooms and administrative offices. The station includes a generator to power the building in the event of a power outage, and the large training room is equipped to serve as an Emergency Operations Center in the event of a local disaster.

It is the framework of the building that makes it especially unique and, more importantly, economical and environmentally-conscious. The City selected a cost-saving pre-engineered metal building structure framed with recycled steel fabricated off-site to exact specifications.  The pre-engineered steel structure is faster to construct and offers significant savings in material costs.  And, the structure has a longer service life, to serve Buena Park residents well into the future. This project was delivered on-schedule and under-budget.
