Saratoga Fire Station

Rebuilt in 2004, the new station is a two-story four bay station. Built to accommodate the growing needs of the Saratoga Fire District, the new station was designed with the business areas downstairs, and the living quarters upstairs. The main apparatus bay has two double deep bays, and one single depth bay.  There is an additional, separate bay that is use by the county ambulance company.

In order to accommodate the needs of the citizens of Saratoga, the station was built to include a classroom/community room. Various clubs and organizations around the Saratoga area can use the room as a meeting place.

Station History

The first Saratoga fire station was originally built as a garage around 1925.  In 1957, the Saratoga Fire District bought the garage and remodeled it, adding a kitchen, and a dormitory.  The Fire District operated out of the building with an ever-expanding fleet and roster.  Finally in 2000, the Saratoga community voted to approve bond money to build a new station at the present site.  In 2003, land behind the old station was purchased to house a temporary station while the new one was built.  In September of 2004, Saratoga’s first real firehouse was dedicated.  In 2008, the Saratoga Fire District entered into a contract for service with the Santa Clara County Fire Department.
