The fire station that served as the home base for the Lathrop Manteca District for decades has finally gotten a facelift. The $4 million upgrade represented not just a much-needed overhaul of the aging facility, but also represented an investment into the agency’s historic roots – giving residents on the east side of I-5 a building that they can be proud of while at same time providing functionality that didn’t exist before. In addition to constructing separate bunk space to allow for gender diversity among the rank-and-fire personnel, the overhaul included exterior building work and the removal of the expansive grass area that was in front of the building – replacing it with drought-tolerant landscaping, riverbed, bark, and several trees in an attempt to curtail water usage for landscaping. A new alerting system was also installed, and a “clean area” where firefighter gear is stored so that it won’t be contaminated was also constructed.
