On January 4th, Forcum/Mackey Construction and the City of Visalia celebrated the groundbreaking of the Visalia Fire Department’s Fire Station 56.
Located on 1321 South Lovers Lane, once constructed, Station 56 will be the new home of Engine 56, which is currently stationed on the CAL FIRE Tulare campus just south of the site.
The new fire station will be a replacement fire station, as Engine 56 will move from the CAL FIRE Tulare campus once the new City station is complete.
Fire Station 56 will be 6, 800 square feet in size, which includes the living quarters and the two apparatus space, which will house the engines. The station will back-up against Arkle Street.
Construction will be in 2024.
