City of Downey Fire Stations #1-#4

Over its 60-year history, the Downey Fire Department has evolved from an operation that handled 363 fire and rescue calls in its first year to a modern fire department that currently responds to more than 11,000 emergencies annually. WD’s master planning, programming and design for these facilities assures that each fire station’s renovations and additions will fully support Downey Fire Department’s commitment to meeting the challenges of the future while providing state-of-the-art service to the Downey community of today.

As the Department’s operational model has broadened to encompass an increasing level of service to the community – particularly in the area of emergency medical services – stations built in the ‘60s and ‘70s had become out-of-sync with the Department’s expanded mission. The thoughtful design of these buildings and environments represent a great new experience for these first-responders and support staff which will significantly increase the functionality and flexibility of their space, firefighter comfort and parity across stations; along with an enhanced civic presence and identity. Construction on two of the stations is underway, with construction of the other two slated to commence in January 2020.
