The Cosumnes Community Services District is preparing to build Fire Station No. 77 at 8350 Poppy Ridge Road near Big Horn Boulevard in the City of Elk Grove. The fire station is needed to provide adequate emergency response times to the surrounding area.
The project includes construction of a 9,010 square foot fire station, 3,300 square foot prefabricated metal storage building, and 1.75 acres of site improvements. Other project features include a communications tower, solar panels, and electric vehicle charging stations.
Project Planning Phases
Current Status: Construction
Business and Operation Plan: Board approved November 4, 2020
Cosumnes Community Services District broke ground on its ninth fire station during a ceremony on Tuesday, March 22.
The construction of Station 77 is timely due to the significant growth that has occurred in the district boundary since 2008. In particular, the fast-growing south end of Elk Grove where this station is located.
District officials say their goal is for a fire engine, fire truck, or ambulance to arrive at emergencies within 6 minutes of dispatch. Their current response times average 7 1/2 minutes. The addition of Engine 77 and Medic 77 will help them work toward that 6-minute goal.
