We are very satisfied with the excellent design by the architect, Richard Burton, and his team of engineers as well as the construction by Wright Contracting and its subcontractors. The station was built through cash reserves and a loan from the USDA. The 3.75% fixed loan will be paid back over the next 30 years using the existing taxes paid by our community... NO new taxes or bonds were needed to complete the building. For more details about the project, click here.

New Fire Station Project

In February 2006, the Graton Fire Protection District purchased the Del Davis Christmas Tree Farm located at 3750 Gravenstein Highway North, between Mueller and Green Valley Roads.  The current station, originally built as a train depClick for a full size pictureot, is leaking, has significant structural concerns, and cannot accommodate the current equipment or apparatus.  The existing location is too narrow to build a replacement fire station.  Not only does the new land provide sufficient space, but it is also on Highway 116 offering better access to the district and a higher elevation to watch for smoke.

The new fire station will support the current and future needs of the Fire District.  Each year, the volunteers respond to an increasing number of calls... making Graton the busiest, all-volunteer department in the County.  Realistically, the call volume will reach a point when full-time staffing will be a necessity and the new station will be ready to support it.  It is with this vision that the new fire station will be designed; to meet the demands of the community over the next 50 years.
