On Tuesday morning, city and state officials gathered to reopen South City's Fire Station 63 at 33 Arroyo Drive.
Rehabilitation of the station began in Nov. 2011 after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded the city a $2.05 million grant for that purpose, via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed in 2009.
The intention of the renovation project was to increase the clearance in the station's apparatus bay to accomodate fire engines, and also to improve the station's living conditions.
Congresswoman Jackie Speier, State Senator Leland Yee, South City fire officials and city councilmembers and Mayor Garbarino were in attendance.
