Lakeside Fire Station 2 Progress Update.

Lakeside:  4/4/2011
The contractor who is building the new fire station is moving along quickly with their work.  This Monday (4/4/11) they poured the first of three large slabs.  The slab poured today will be for the fire station "living area" of the building.  170 yards of concrete were needed to complete this pour (that's 17 cement trucks!).  
Because this is an "essential services building" each of the concrete trucks gives a special inspector a sample of the "mud" in the truck for analysis to assure hardness and consistency.  Every part of the building process has to be built to a much higher standard of construction than a regular home or business.  
Stay tuned, the hope is that next Monday...they'll be pouring again, this time the south side of the station.  The District appreciates the Community's support of our service.

  1. Awesome, thank you for the update. I live 1000 feet from the new station and it's fascinating watching the progress. From everything I've read and seen this is going to be an amazing facility. We feel so lucky to have it right here in Lakeside.

    Loving the blog too!
