This June, Fremont is scheduled to open a new fire station that it won’t be able to staff.
Fire Chief Bruce Martin told the City Council tonight that the fire department hasn’t been staffing the current fire Station 11 in the industrial zone west of Interstate 880 to save money on overtime.
A new Station 11 is under construction and is scheduled to be finished in June. The department will christen the building when its completed, but in all likelyhood it won’t staff it untill it can afford to.
Martin said Station 11 gets thew fewest service calls because there are no residents nearby and most of the buildings have sprinklers.
