Santa Clara Fire District Station 61 serves as the Administrative Office of the Santa Clara Fire District. All paid staff members, including the Fire Chief, Training Officer, Recruitment and Retention Officer, and the Administrative Assistant are based out of this station. Station 61 is also home to Engines 611 and 612, as well as Rescue 618.
There are no living quarters in this station, so the station is not staffed outside of normal business hours. However, 12-15 respond from home volunteers respond to this station when there is an emergency in the district.
Station 62 recently underwent a seismic upgrade, which was funded through a grant. The seismic upgrade strengthened the structure to ensure that it remains standing and functional in the event of an earthquake.
