Throughout the years, five separate additions were made to the second station to accommodate the growing needs of the community, the most significant being the fourth addition in 1975, designed to house a new 1,500 GPM pumper and a 100-foot aerial truck.
In 2010, voters of the district approved a complete replacement project of the old station with a new station. Ground was broken in March of 2011 for the firehouse, which occupies roughly the same footprint as the old one, but increased the square footage from 15,000 square feet to roughly 22,000 square feet. The firehouse was built further back from Western Avenue to provide extra room for apparatus to back into the bays without holding up traffic. The station featured new energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, more office space, modern meeting rooms, and updated technology and communication equipment.
The building’s capacity and functionality have continually evolved with the changing needs of the Westmere Fire Department.
