History[edit] The San Luis Obispo Fire Department was first organized in 1876 when two hose carts were acquired to form Goodwill Hose Companies 1 and 2.[2] The carts were house at the livery stable located at the intersection of Nipomo Street and Higuera Street. Years later a Tiger hook and ladder was purchased. The fire department later shared a building with the police department and city hall on Higuera Street where Charles Shoes is located. The building caught fire and was eventually demolished. The original jail cells are still present in the rear store room of Charles Shoes.


EMS[edit] The San Luis Obispo Fire Department is the primary provider of paramedic service in the city, in partnership with the transporting provider San Luis Ambulance. Each fire apparatus is staffed with a minimum of one paramedic, working as a team with EMT's. Most apparatus are staffed with two paramedics whenever staffing permits. In the event of an ambulance shortage, the fire department's squad 1 is utilized to provide for transport. Squad 1 also responds to vegetation fires throughout the state as an emergency standby unit for firefighter safety.


Staffing[edit] The on duty strength of the department is 14 personnel 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Three engine companies are staffed with three personnel, and the ladder truck is staffed with four personnel. The battalion chief serves as the on duty supervisor for all crews and responds out of fire station 1. Challenging economic times have kept the fire department staffing the same since 1978, when the call volume was approximately 1000 incidents per year. Since that time, call volume has increased 600%, along with the addition of paramedic services, urban search and rescue, hazmat, and many other modern fire service programs. Recent development in the city has sparked the possibility of a fifth fire station located in the Avila Ranch area near Buckley Road. The environmental impact and fire master plan reports filed with the city show that the trigger point for increased fire department staffing will be in approximately 2024, where a two person squad unit will be temporarily stationed within the Avila Ranch development. Current call volume statistics reveal that workload should increase to approximately 9,000 incidents per year by that time.


Stations[edit] The city has four fire stations spread throughout the city. Station 1 has the paramedic quint ladder truck as its first out unit, the remaining stations have engine companies as their first out unit. Fire station 4 cross staffs a type 3 fire engine. Station 1 was constructed in 1996, replacing a seismically unsafe facility at the corner of Garden and Pismo. The previous station was sold to a local developer and retrofitted for use as an office. Stations 2 was built in the 1950's, station 3 was built in the 1960's, and station 4 was built in 1978.[3] Address Engines Trucks Other Personnel 1 2160 Santa Barbara Ave Truck 1, Truck 2 Squad 1, Patrol 1 & Battalion 1 5 (including the battalion chief) 2 126 No. Chorro Engine 2, OES 385 Utility 2 3 3 1280 Laurel Ln Engine 3, Engine 5 3 4 1395 Madonna Rd Engine 4, Engine 6 3
