Permanent facility for Fire Station 3 opened

For The Madera Tribune

Dignitaries gather to cut the ceremonial ribbon to open Madera County Fire Station No. 3 on February 2.


Madera County marked a significant milestone on February 2, with the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly constructed Fire Station No. 3. 

The event celebrated the culmination of efforts spanning 36 years since the station’s inception in 1986, and highlighted the transition from a leased mobile home trailer to a state-of-the-art permanent building.

Originally established at the southwest corner of Road 26 and Avenue 18 1/2, Fire Station No. 3’s early years saw the installation of a 552-square-foot mobile home trailer and a 1,750-square-foot apparatus bay. However, due to the deteriorating conditions of the trailer after more than three decades of service, the fire department vacated the station in the summer of 2017.
