East Contra Costa Fire to Host Ceremony to Change Station 93 to Station 53

Station 93, Oakley

The East Contra Costa Fire Protection District invites the public to retire Station 93 as it will be renumbered to Station 53 on June 30, 2017.

The District will host the ceremony promptly at 11:00 am as the station will remain open, but function with a new station identification number-Station 53.

For those who would like to attend, the Station is located at 530 O’Hara Avenue in Oakley. During the ceremony, the District will recognize the many members from the community who volunteered and also worked at out of the station as a career firefighter.

“The firefighters both volunteer and professional are very proud individuals and they put a lot into ensuring the community was safe. It’s only right that we recognize their efforts and show our appreciation as a District, “says Fire Chief Brian Helmick. “For the public, nothing is changing other than a single digit for identification purposes. The station is staying in the same location and will operate just like it normally would.”

Station 93 is changing its identification number to 53 so it can synchronize with Battalion 5 and all stations will be labeled in the “50” series.

The locations of the open stations include:

  • Station 52 – 201 John Muir Park Way, Brentwood CA 94513
  • Station 53 – 530 O’Hara Ave, Oakley CA 94561
  • Station 59 – 1685 Bixler Road, Discovery Bay CA 94505

Station 93 first opened in August, 2011 at a cost of $3.1 million which was paid by the City of Oakley Fire Facilities Impact Fee Fund-paid by developers.

  1. Once again, this district FAILS to follow directives. The directive was to change the NAME and go to and ELECTED board.

    Deaf, dumb and blind has become a good option if they ever get to completion. Defunct may be a better one.

    And yet they can’t figure out why the district has no support. Go figure!

  2. What is the purpose of spending money to change the station number that has been active for 60 years? What advantage and/or financial savings are being benefitted to this financially failing district?
