Menlo Park fire district dedicates new building

 

The first administrative office for the Menlo Park Fire Protection District to be separate from the fire station was dedicated Tuesday morning at 9 a.m.

The new administrative office building, located at 170 Middlefield Road, is the first to be located away from the fire station since the District formed in 1916, according to fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman.

At twice the size of the District's former offices, the building will hold the chief officers, support staff and the Fire Prevention Bureau, Schapelhouman said.

The project is the result of a three-year effort to locate, purchase and remodel an existing structure at just under $5 million, he said. Had the District opted to rebuild Fire Station 1, the project would have cost $19.7 million, he said.
