San Bernardino County Fire opens new headquarters

San Bernardino County officials, community leaders, current County Fire employees and retirees came together for a grand opening celebration marking the completion of the new state-of-the-art San Bernardino County Fire Protection District headquarters facility.

According to the county, the new location will centralize and enhance fire services across the county, housing most of the Fire District’s administrative functions including operational leadership, administration, the Office of the Fire Marshal and EMS Divisions.

“Our new headquarters is a testament to our growth and commitment to public safety and the communities we serve,” said San Bernardino County Fire Chief Dan Munsey. “This facility will help us to streamline our communication efforts and emergency response plans. From our day-to-day responses to major disasters, this facility will help ensure our residents continue to receive the world-class service, fire, rescue, and EMS service they have come to expect from the San Bernardino County Fire Protection District.”

The new facility agreement is a unique 25-year capital lease between IVDA and ICO Realty. It encompasses all development and operational costs. The 79,834-square-foot two-story building with a basement is situated on a 4.6-acre property at 598 South Tippecanoe Ave. in San Bernardino. At the lease’s conclusion, the Fire District will own the property.

Construction began in November 2022 and was substantially completed by May 2024 at a project cost of approximately $26 million.
