The Warner Springs Fire Station in the North County has been officially replaced by a $2.7 million state-of-the-art facility.
According to CAL FIRE, the upgraded station located at 31049 Highway 79 was funded by a state bond.
Now, after more than 60 years of service, the two-bay Warner Springs Fire Station will house equipment and up to 12 firefighters who serve the community of Warner Springs, including CAL FIRE personnel and volunteers with the Warner Springs Fire Company.
Equipment based at the station includes a state-owned fire engine and county-owned water tender.
A ribbon-cutting dedication was held at the new fire station on Saturday morning.
“This station embodies the collaboration between CAL FIRE and the County and shows how we work together closely to protect the public and use taxpayer resources wisely,” said County Supervisor Bill Horn.
