Existing Fire Station 59


History
Fire Station 59 is located at 11505 Olympic Blvd and was constructed in 1963.  The station houses a Paramedic Assessment Engine Company staffed by 4 Firefighters.  Based on a study of operational needs, the Fire Department is seeking expansion of the existing site for construction of a 6000 square foot apparatus storage building and a  2,500 square foot multi-purpose room.   Unique to this facility is its oversized parcel and the existence of a Drill Tower.  

Reason for Project
The location and size of this property offers an opportunity to establish a Regional Facility within the West Los Angeles Community. Placement of such a facility at this location will enable the Department to achieve its goal of creating a Regional Fire Station network in the West Los Angeles area.
