SAN JOSE FIRE STATION NO. 34

Station 34 was sited to mitigate existing response time issues created by multiple freeway cutoffs on the east side of town in an industrial area. The station accommodates an engine company and truck company in 12,000 SF. Due to the tight urban site, the station is a two-story building with three apparatus bays, suppression support, administration offices, and firefighter living quarters on the first floor. Firefighter sleeping quarters and bathrooms are on the second floor.

With space for growth, the Fire Department has been able to use this facility to accommodate the move-up of engine and truck companies when their stations were under construction during the Bond Program.

Project completed while Candice Wong and Jim Duffy co-managed the Public Safety Studio at RRM Design Group. Jim was the Design Architect and Project Manager; Candice was the City's Advisor on project compliance with the Fire Facility Program.
