Fire Station 71 Getting Remodeled
Posted by Melissa Simon on Oct 14, 2013 - 1:50:08 PM

MALIBU—The demolition of Fire Station 71 began on Monday, October 14, in order to make way for a remodeled version of the station.

The station, which was originally built in 1939, is one of the oldest stations in Malibu and “is no longer able to keep up with the newer, larger equipment resources or emerging technologies,” according to the release.

The current building will be expanded to a 5,800-sqaure-foot facility featuring individual dorms for firefighters, two full bathrooms, office space and enough room to accommodate two fire engines and a paramedic squad as well as an updated septic system.

During the remodel, first responders will be at a temporary fire station located at 30050 W. Pacific Coast Highway, next to the Zuma Beach Lifeguard headquarters and less than two miles from the existing station.

The demolition for the project began this week and is expected to take between 10 and 12 months to complete, as stated in the release.   

A tile mosaic for the building’s façade, created by local artist Matt Doolin, will be featured as part of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission’s Civic Program. Doolin is a collaborator at Topanga Art Tile and was chosen from more than 50 applicants. Media relations for the Los Angeles County Fire Department  could not be reached for comment as of press time.
