      Dear Friend of the LAFD,

      You are cordially invited to join civic and community leaders, including Fire Chief Douglas Barry at the groundbreaking ceremony for new Los Angeles Fire Station 82 in Hollywood. Please join us...

      Thursday, May 28, 2009
      10:00 AM
      Site of New Fire Station 82
      5769 Hollywood Boulevard
      Hollywood, CA 90028

      All are welcome. We are pleased to offer an interactive map with driving directions:

      ==========================
      For photos and artist's concept of the new station, please visit http://LAFD.ORG/BLOG
      ==========================

      Established in the midst of World War II and housed in the distant and overcrowded quarters of LAFD's historic Fire Station 27 for its first 7 years, Engine Company 82 came to serve the burst of population and industry in Hollywood during the Truman presidency, when residents and City leaders saw the need to construct a neighborhood station for the crew at 1800 North Bronson Avenue.

      Opened on March 2, 1951 adjacent to the "Cahuenga Parkway" that would become the well known Hollywood (US 101) Freeway in 1954, the 7,145 square-foot single-bay Fire Station soon became an integral part of a largely residential community that, like the LAFD, greatly evolved in the nearly six decades that followed.

      Today's Fire Station 82, staffed at all times by four Firefighters and two Firefighter/Paramedics, protects a nearly 2 square mile district that is a busy mix of high density residential and commercial properties, television studios, entertainment and tourist sites, not to mention a portion of legendary Griffith Park that contains the iconic "Hollywood" sign.

      Were this not enough, the station crew also bears the primary responsibility of protecting hundreds of homes constructed in rugged terrain surrounded by volatile vegetation.

      For those working inside the 58-year-old building that is today's Station 82, the electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems have changed little since it was built, and remain a daily impediment to efficient operations.

      Many of the current Fire Station's neighbors still look on in amazement as the staff at the single-bay Fire Station scrambles to move one or more vehicles when an emergency response calls for only the Engine Company or the Ambulance, merely to see the process repeated again and again around-the-clock as the crews return to quarters and are again dispatched to emergencies.

      Equally foreboding for both workers and visitors to the current station are deficiencies in parking, seismic safety, climate control, ADA compliance and gender equity.

      Because the property beneath current Fire Station 82 was too small to support a new or revamped Fire Station, Proposition F of November 2000 will provide the community with a new and unique facility on the northeast corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Van Ness Avenue.

      The energy efficient New Fire Station 82 will be a multi-bay facility with a vision for the future, allowing the LAFD to provide the highest levels of service to a community it is long proud to have been a part of.

      We look forward to seeing you this Thursday morning for the groundbreaking ceremony, and encourage you to learn more about new Fire Station 82 via a detailed Monthly Progress Report in PDF format accessible through:

      I particularly noticed the phrase. volatile vegetation . It makes me think of plants bursting into flame. So are you a member of this fire fighting group?
