Constructionstarted Nov. 14,2011. Move-in is scheduledfor next month but the public had the chanceto get a sneak peak before it’s in action.“The refurbishing has been overdue formany years,said Mayor Rich Garbarino,who added fire staff has long dealt withyears of leaks,cold and basically an anti-quated facility.Renovation work started more than threeyears ago when the South San Francisco FireDepartment was one of 7,500 departmentsnationwide to make a bid for AmericanRecovery and Reinvestment Act funds,saidCapt. Matt Samson. The city was awarded just more than $2 million to upgrade thefacilities,living quarters and structure itself.Battalion Chief Chris Campagnaexplained the station was first located downEl Camino Real in the 1950s but was relo-cated to 33 Arroyo Drive in the ’80s. Thedark facility was often home to the youngerpeople in the department,he said. As aresult,Station 63 has had nicknames like thewhine cellar or playpen,Campagna said.Station 63 is home to one engine andone paramedic rescue vehicle,whichmeans five people man the station 24hours a day,Campagna said.The paramedic rescue vehicle assigned toStation 63 is the busiest in the county after10 p.m.,he said.
