New Hayward (CA) Fire Station And Training Center At Airport Get OK

 
 

A mid-sized aircraft, similar to a Gulfstream jet, also will be available as a prop that can be set alight so firefighters can practice extinguishing blazes and pulling people from confined spaces.

The $60 million project, a partnership between the city and Chabot-Las Positas Community College District, also will replace the Hayward Fire Department’s Station 6 at the airport near Interstate 880.

“To have the the opportunity for our region to train using our Bay Area Rapid Transit system was a real priority in the construction and design” of the center and station, fire Chief Garrett Contreras told the Planning Commission Oct. 25, when it unanimously took action to get the project built.
