County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, who represents Santa Clarita as part of the county’s fifth district; Daryl Osby, chief of LACoFD; representatives from State Senator Scott Wilk’s office, Rep. Steve Knight’s office, Assemblyman Dante Acosta’s office; and members of the Santa Clarita City Council attended the event.

The officials all grabbed shovels and moved the first mounds of dirt where the new Fire station will stand.   

Station 104 is being built on Golden Valley Road in Canyon Country, not far from where the street becomes Newhall Ranch Road.

For the last decade, firefighter personnel and equipment have been working out of a temporary Fire station on Golden Valley Road, a few miles from where the permanent location has been planned.

Since April, firefighter personnel and equipment had to move and operate out of Fire Station 150, as the temporary station was shut down to make room for the new headquarters for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, which held a groundbreaking ceremony in July.

The new permanent Fire Station 104 is scheduled to be completed in November 2019, according to officials.
