Interim Fire Station No. 7
The Woodside Fire Protection District will be constructing Interim Fire Station 7 on the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory site. This temporary fire station will be in operation for approximately 18 months while the new Fire Station 7 is reconstructed at 3111 Woodside Road. This facility will not be open to the public. Access will be through a secure automated gate at the Sand Hill Road and Whiskey Hill Road intersection.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
It is our goal to have no negative impact on our surrounding community. While the interim facility will not be visible from Sand Hill Road, a new secure automated gate will be installed, along with temporary traffic signs and road striping. During construction, roads will remain open and we do not anticipate any traffic increase or impact. Emergency responders will not sound their sirens or honk their horns on site and not until away from the intersection.

Construction of the Temporary Fire Station 7 will start in the Fall of 2021 and will be completed Winter of 2022. The new Fire Station 7 on Woodside Road is scheduled to be completed Fall of 2023. At that time, the temporary fire station will be removed from the property.
