The fire station, designed by I.E. Pacific, Inc., recently won the Facility Design Honor Award – the highest achievement – in the 2020 U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer Center Design Award Program. The Los Angeles District was the design agent for the facility. The new $44-million, 41,000-square-foot-facility replaced the old fire station, which was in service for more than 50 years.
