Background: The San José Fire Department (SJFD) is pleased to announce the ribbon cutting for the new Fire Station 37.

Located on Lincoln Avenue, Station 37 opened on May 10, 2022. The new station serves the south area of the Willow Glen community and the north area of the Cambrian community. The thoughtful and strategic placement of this new Fire Station will strengthen SJFD's emergency response capabilities citywide and improve response time performance of adjacent Fire Stations 6, 9, 13 and 26.

The new building is an 8,100 square foot two-story, single-fire company station that contains two apparatus bays, separate crew and captain's offices, an open kitchen, dining and living room plan, exercise room, and five two-bed capacity dormitories with private restrooms.

The building was designed for energy savings with numerous occupancy sensors. It is the second facility in the City of San José that was designed and built adopting the City's new standards of Zero Net Carbon (ZNC). This new building eliminates the use of natural gas, and all heating and cooling systems as well as the water heater and stove are energy efficient electric appliances.

Besides the ZNC, this facility has 82 Photovoltaic Panels, over the roof and the parking structure, generating a total of 25kW in solar power. The exterior architecture enriches the area and the red tower and four-fold apparatus bay doors signify the presence of the Fire Station to the community.

Fire Station 37 was built using Disaster Preparedness, Public Safety, and Infrastructure Bond (Measure T) funds approved by voters in 2018. The building was designed by IBI-Group Architects, and their subconsultants. It was constructed by Gonsalves & Stronck Construction Company as the General Contractor. The project was completed on schedule and within the approved $8.8 million budget.
