Grand Opening of Long Beach Fire Station 12

On Tuesday, September 24, 2013 Mayor Bob Foster, Councilmember Steven Neal, Long Beach Development Services, and the Long Beach Fire Department hosted the Grand Opening and Dedication of newly constructed Fire Station 12.

The new Fire Station 12 and the Emergency Resource Center is located at 1199 E. Artesia Blvd., on a 1.2 acre site covering the entire northwest corner of Artesia Boulevard and Orange Avenue.

The 11,296 square-foot Fire Station has a 100-foot-tall communication tower that will greatly enhance radio coverage throughout the city. The Station has been built on a highly visible major traffic corridor; which provides noise and traffic-safety benefits.

The landscape design at this location uses native vegetation with water-saving irrigation systems 90 percent of construction debris was diverted from landfills and recycled.

In addition, the facility will also serve as home to a 5,294 square-foot Emergency Resource Center (ERC) that will serve as an important supply and distribution facility in North Long Beach. With the ERC in place, Station 12 will allow the City to create a regional disaster supply depot with enough materials to handle the northern half of the City in case of a major disaster.
