A January 2022 inspection of North County Fire Protection District Station 2 in the Winterwarm area indicated that deferred maintenance has caused numerous structure and ground issues which create a safety risk for NCFPD employees and for the public. A 4-0 NCFPD vote May 24, with David Kennedy absent, approved a $353,410 contract with Reed Family Enterprises, Inc., to address the fire station maintenance needs.
The work will provide safety, operational, and aesthetic improvements to the fire station in the 2100 block of Winterwarm Drive. Reed Family Enterprises will replace cracked or missing concrete on the driveways, provide new exterior lighting with dusk-to-dawn sensors, replace inoperable or otherwise damaged electric gate sensors, provide interior and exterior painting, install new apparatus bay doors along with controllers, provide signage for visitor parking, repair exterior wood fascia and beams, create additional employee parking, and provide landscaping and irrigation.
A request for proposals was followed by the submission of bids. Reed Family Enterprises, which is based in Temecula, had the low responsive bid.
The work is expected to begin this month.
