Existing Fire Station 64


History
Fire Station 64 was constructed in 1951 and is located at 118 W. 108th Street.  The station is approximately 8010 square feet and houses a Task Force and two Rescue Ambulances for a total staffing of 11 firefighters and 2 paramedics.  Fire Station 64’s district is approximately 5.1 square miles and contains many an older residential units along with a commercial area. 

Reason for Project
The existing fire station is overcrowded and occupied beyond capacity.  Today the Fire Station is unable to house the assigned resources creating the necessity to park the Rescue Ambulance outside on the front apron of the Fire Station.

Evaluation Of Current Facility
Areas of deficiencies that were noted by Bureau of Engineering survey determined problems with: space, seismic, heating and air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, building code, American Disabilities Act (ADA), fire protection systems, and lack of adequate separate gender facilities.

Projected Resource Workloads
Community planning census information and Fire Department historical incident data have been used to project resource workloads.  It is projected that the number of responses will increase 18.2% for apparatus assigned to Fire Station 64 by  the year 2010.
Service Area Population Growth
Community planning census information indicates that the population growth for South Central L.A. has increased steadily and is projected to increase to 288,156, which is a 19.6% increase by the year 2010.
