Crew Moves Into New Skyline Fire Station
The city of San Diego has opened a new, temporary fire station in Skyline as it seeks to quickly reach emergencies in one of the city’s most underserved areas.
In 2011, consulting firm Citygate Associates identified 19 neighborhoods – many of them south of Interstate 8 – that were underserved by firefighters. Skyline was part of that list.
“Today’s station opening is a significant improvement in emergency response for the Skyline Hills and surrounding neighborhoods,” Fire Chief Javier Mainar said. “We are grateful to the Mayor and City Council for their support of public safety and making this station possible.”
