Fire Station 71 – though technically a remodel and seismic upgrade – is essentially  a completely new building. Old station 71 was a 2-bay station with less than spartan residential quarters, outdated mechanical & electrical systems, and no safeguards in place to ensure a safe and healthy working/living environment.  The new station – which utilizes the majority of the existing structural walls and roof framing – expands the apparatus bay, properly/safely separates rooms with the potential to house toxic chemicals from the remainder of the station, creates six bedrooms, and provides separate bathroom facilities for occupants of different genders – all previously lacking.
