Marking the eighth new or improved fire station to open since he took office, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer will be joined Tuesday by City Councilmember Lorie Zapf, interim Fire-Rescue Chief Kevin Ester and community leaders to officially open the new Fire Station No. 22 at 1055 Catalina Blvd. at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 24.

Originally built in 1942, Fire Station No. 22 is on the western edge of Point Loma Community Park. The new 6,180-square-foot facility includes two vehicle bays with a redesigned driveway that will reduce traffic disruptions on Catalina Boulevard when the engines respond to emergency calls.

Since Faulconer took office, the City has opened new fire stations in four neighborhoods – City Heights, Little Italy, Mission Valley and Point Loma – and renovated four others that serve the communities of La Jolla, Mira Mesa, North Park and Southcrest.
