San Bernardino County plans new fire district headquarters

San Bernardino will soon be home to the new San Bernardino County Fire Protection District headquarters.

In a construction dedication earlier this week, the County outlined details for the new $26 million facility at the former Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) building on South Tippecanoe Avenue in San Bernardino. The building will feature water and energy saving features and a firefighters memorial.

This will be the first time the fire district’s Administration, Fire Marshal, and Training, Safety & EMS divisions will all be under one roof.

“Thank you to the Board of Supervisors and everyone else involved for their support in bringing this project to fruition,” said County Fire Chief Dan Munsey. “This headquarters facility will benefit the residents of San Bernardino County, who we are proud to serve.”

The San Bernardino County Fire Protection District is a community-based, all-risk/full-service, premier fire, rescue and EMS department. Its jurisdiction encompasses 19,278 square miles of extremely diverse environments that stretch from the Los Angeles, Riverside, Kern, Inyo, and Orange county lines to the Colorado River, Arizona, and Nevada.

It provides services to more than 60 communities and all of the county’s unincorporated areas. The district operates 48 fire stations and seven paid-call/volunteer fire stations and has 1,060 employees, including more than 760 firefighters.
