Fire Station 3 Open House Postponed

Fire Station 3 Open House Postponed

The grand opening and open house for the newly rebuilt Palo Alto Fire Station 3, scheduled for Saturday, March 21, is being postponed at this time to adhere to guidance from the Santa Clara County Health Department to cancel large events in an effort to limit the spread of coronavirus.

In the meantime, finishing touches are currently being put on new fire station built at the corner of Embarcadero and Newell Roads- the same lot as the previous station that has served the community since 1948.

This is the first of 10 citywide infrastructure projects to be completed from the 2014 Infrastructure Plan. Some of the special community amenities at this newly constructed station include:

• Water Bottle Filling Station
• Bike Repair Station
• Interactive Public Art
• More Pedestrian Standing Room at Embarcadero Road crossing

Come see it all for yourself at the grand opening and open. For more details on the Fire Station 3 project, click here.
