The San Francisco Fire Department celebrated the completion of its new Ambulance Deployment Facility on 6/23/21. Avila provided construction management support services the San Francisco Public Works Department for this project for 3 years.
Located behind Fire Station 9, and approximately one mile from Fire Station 49 in San Francisco’s Bay View District, the site of the City’s new Ambulance Deployment Facility at 2241 Jerrold Ave. will provide optimal operations for first responders across the city. The much needed four-story building is a seismically safe structure designed to serve the growing, 21st century San Francisco. In addition to bolstering emergency response time and efficiency, the Ambulance Deployment Facility will now be the headquarters for the SFFD’s emergency medical services that were housed in a cramped, seismically-deficient warehouse on Evans Ave. The project achieved LEED Gold certification for sustainability.
The state-of-the-art new building and site is equipped with ample parking for the fleet and storage for ambulance supplies and vehicle restocking, as well as emergency medical services offices, conference and training rooms, locker rooms and communal space. The location also has an on-site fueling, and emergency generator, solar panels and entry gates featuring art panels by artist Michael Bartalos. The Ambulance Deployment Facility replacement project is part of the 2016 voter-approved Public Health and Safety Bond, which dedicated $350 million toward capital improvements for City facilities to meet the critical health and safety needs of San Francisco.
