The Fire Station No. 2 Replacement project for the City of Carlsbad includes the demolition of the existing fire station located at 1906 Arenal Road in Carlsbad, and construction of a new fire station in the same location. Prior to the demolition, a temporary sprung structure fire station was built in a portion of the parking lot of the Dove Library, less than a mile north of the existing station.
The new two-story station will be approximately 10,782 square feet, constructed on the same 0.42-acre site as the existing single-story station. In addition to 3 apparatus bays, the new station will include dormitories, a kitchen, dining area, bathrooms, a common area, laundry facilities, storage, weight room, and office spaces. The station will accommodate five firefighters and one captain on duty per 24-hour shift, year-round.
