The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors on June 5 unanimously approved a plan to provide fire services for the Cayucos community and a proposal to assess future fire protection needs countywide. First District Supervisor John Peschong said he doesn't see how certain areas of the county can have the necessary fire coverage without the county stepping in. "I'm in a really tough place here, but I think we have to do this and I don't want people to feel that they're in jeopardy because we didn't step up," Peschong said. The Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to staff one structure engine 24/7 with two firefighters housed at the existing station in Cayucos, Station 56, through its contract with Cal Fire. The station will require renovations that are estimated to be $1.1 million.
