County Cuts Ribbon on New Skylonda Fire Station
San Mateo County officials and residents are celebrating the near-completion of the new $10 million Skylonda Fire Station, a modern facility that replaces an existing 1936 fire house with improved firefighter living quarters and vehicle space to help speed public safety response.
The new station, expected to be completed in March 2019, has a two-story, 12,037-square-foot main building with individual quarters for 13 firefighters and a 1,638-square-foot vehicle building.
It will replace an 82-year-old, Depression-era barracks that will be torn down when the new building is occupied.
Local officials on Sept. 19, 2018, celebrated a construction milestone with a ribbon cutting and by unveiling an new plaque. Read more.
