Mitzelfelt Partners with Hesperia to Build New Fire Station

Brad Mitzelfelt

HESPERIA – First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt today announced that the County of San Bernardino will contribute $3.5 million to the City of Hesperia toward construction of a new fire station in southwest Hesperia. A formal agreement will be considered by the Hesperia City Council tonight and will later come before the County Board of Supervisors for final approval.

The "joint-use" station, which will be the first of its kind in the High Desert, will be shared by Hesperia Fire Protection District County firefighters as well as County firefighters serving the unincorporated Oak Hills area. The fire station will be owned by the city, and the county will pay $1 per year for 25 years to lease a portion of the station from the city for to serve unincorporated areas.

“I’m happy to be able to partner with the City of Hesperia on this innovative agreement,” said Supervisor Mitzelfelt. “I look forward to a successful partnership between the city and the county in providing even better fire protection to Hesperia and Oak Hills.”

The fire station will be built on land owned by the city west of I-15 near Joshua Street. The city will complete the design and construction of the station. The total cost for the station is expected to be about $10 million. Construction of the station should begin in spring 2008 and be completed within a year.

The County Fire Department will staff the leased portion of the station with a three-man paramedic engine company, and provide fire protection and emergency services to designated areas within the unincorporated areas of the County and within the City until the City is able to provide a designated ambulance and engine company to the station to be shared with County Fire. The County Fire crew would be relocated from the current Oak Hills Station 40 on Caliente Road.

“This new station will provide a tremendous boost to public safety in southwest Hesperia and Oak Hills,” Mitzelfelt said.
