SAN JOSE FIRE STATION NO.34

Station No.34 was sited to mitigate existing response time issues in an industrial portion of the Eastside which is cutoff by multiple freeways. This station accommodates a current engine company and future truck company in 12,000 SF.  Due to a tight urban site, the station is a two-story building with three apparatus bays, support, administration and firefighter living quarters on the first floor and firefighter sleeping quarters and bathrooms on the second floor.

An added benefit to this station is that with the truck company planned for future growth, the Fire Department has been able to use this facility to accommodate the move-up of companies when their stations were under construction.
