Prototype Fire Station Design for L.A. Done

November 10, 1985

The Huntington Beach-based architectural firm of Anthony & Langford has completed the design for a prototype fire station that will be used for seven Los Angeles stations that will replace potentially hazardous facilities throughout the city.

The seven stations, to be completed by the fall of 1986, are part of a city of Los Angeles program to replace 17 unreinforced masonry fire stations with 15 new ones built to the latest earthquake standards.

A $20-million budget has been set for the 15-station project, according to the Fire Department. The use of the 9,063-square-foot prototype station will cut down on design time, cost of site developments and construction, a spokesman said.

All the stations will be about the same size, except for Station No. 66 (West Slauson), which will have 12,051 square feet, according to Tony Anthony of the design firm.
