Fire Station 16--4980 Farthing Dr .


Fire Station 16 4980 Farthing Dr

Opened July 17, 1992, Station 16 became the next addition to the CSFD Fire Fighting Arsenal. Situated at 4980 Farthing Way in the Broadmoor Bluffs area, the station serves the rapidly expanding southwest portion of the city.

The exterior of the station was designed to be in harmony with the large, expensive residences in the area as well as providing an example of materials which should be used in home construction in the wildland/urban interface. The interior is completely sprinklered and features a, multilevel layout that includes a community center.

The station is unique in that it was designed by a committee of firefighters working with the architect to incorporate concepts, which were deemed important to firefighter comfort and productivity. It is unique also because it is built within a 5-acre city park, something, which helps the station become even more a part of the neighborhood, which it serves. Its pumper is a 4-wheel-drive Becker, designed specifically to serve the areas of the city that interface with the scrub oak wildlands along the foothills. Similar pumpers are in place at Stations 5, 9, 12, and 13.
