PASO ROBLES — Fire Station 3 is officially open to serve the City of Paso Robles. The new station, located at 2924 Union Road, is now open. Fire Station 3 is a long awaited public safety facility that has hopes to reinforce the existing emergency response system, improve response times to those areas that are currently outside of the 4- minute response zones, and assist with future growth and development.
Fire Station 3 is staffed daily with three firefighters and includes 2602 sq. ft. of living and office space, and 4190 sq. ft. of apparatus garage. Crews will primarily respond a fire engine out of the station and cross-staff the department’s heavy rescue and aerial ladder truck.
Fire Station 3 was funded with a combination of Development Impact Fees and Measure J-20 funds. Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services would like to thank the community of Paso Robles for supporting and approving Measure J-20. The construction of Fire Station 3 also shows the commitment of the Paso Robles City Council to improve response times.
Future phases of the Union Road project will include a training center and additional office space for the Community Risk Reduction Division. A public ribbon cutting event and open house will occur in the spring.
