Fire Station 6 & Fire Training Center

Thanks to the voter backed Measure C we will be able to build a new Fire Station No. 6 and expand our training center. Chabot-Las Positas Community College District will be partnering with us on the project.

The City of Hayward and Chabot-Las Positas Community College District have reached agreement on a partnership to jointly develop a new regional center for firefighter, paramedic, rescue, and emergency response education and training.

The new $71 million Regional Fire Training Center will be constructed at the City’s Hayward Executive Airport as a campus with classrooms, offices, a training tower and other facilities for urban search and rescue, and other types of emergency response, as well as a new Hayward Fire Station #6.

The training center will become the new home of and allow for expansion of Chabot’s fire academy.  Through the partnership, Hayward Fire Department will add both a world-class training facility and a new fire station that will serve Hayward Executive Airport, surrounding neighborhoods and industrial areas west of Interstate 880.  High school students in Eden Area Regional Occupational Program career preparation courses taught by Hayward firefighters also will benefit.

Under a memorandum of understanding recently approved by the Hayward City Council and Chabot-Las Positas Board of Trustees, Hayward will contribute $51 million and the College District will contribute $20 million to the projected $71 million cost of the Training Center.  A use agreement was finalized between the City and District to govern the shared operating roles and responsibilities.  The project was expected to take approximately 24 months to complete once construction began.

The fire station and training center will include:

  • A new fire station and a classroom building
  • Apparatus building
  • Burn building
  • Training Tower
  • Storage building
  • Airplane hangar
  • Outdoor classroom
  • Urban Search & Rescue and BART training structure
  • Entry structure

Next Steps:

  • Design has been completed
  • On July 7, 2020, City Council adopted a resolution awarding the construction contract to S.J. Amoroso Construction
  • Construction began on August 17, 2020 and will be completed by the end of 2023.
