Santa Barbara,Ca 93101

 

The construction of Fire Station 3, at 415 E Sola St, commenced in 1928.  It was completed in 1929 and complied to a 1925 City Ordinance that stipulated that Spanish architecture would be the town's norm.                                                                                    Station 3-1.JPG 

     Points of interest pertaining to station 3 include that it was the home of the City's air raid siren during WWII.  The Gamewell Alarm System Center was also housed behind the station (now animal control and prevention file room).  Station 3 also was the initial hazmat station before station 2.

      Well known landmarks in Station 3's district include the Old Mission,  Museum of Natural History, Rocky Nook Park, Alice Keck Park and Alameda Park. The Station itself was deemed a Historical Landmark by the City.

     Station 3 currently houses two engines.  The front line engine is a 1998 Spartan Hi-Tech and the reserve engine is a 1984 MAC.
