Big Sur Volunteer Fire Brigade, Fire Station #1, Post Ranch Inn

Station #1, our first real fire station was built in 1992 and is our headquarters fire station.  Station #1 is a 8000 square foot building located on the Post Ranch Inn property in the heart of the Big Sur. Station #1 contains our our office, training center, and the majority of our equipment and apparatus. The station houses our Type 3 engine (7831), a 1600 gallon water tender (7840), a 3500 gallon water tender (7841), a rescue vehicle, and a small quick response pick up outfitted with water, foam and emergency equipment. Additionally, the Big Sur Firehouse is home to a County sponsored American Medical Response ambulance with a 24-hour paramedic team serving the Big Sur community.

Station #2 is located at the South Coast Center along the coast a short distance north of the Esalen Institute. Station #2 houses a Type 5 engine (7852).

Station #4, (we are saving room for a future Station #3),  is at the Willow Springs CALTRANS yard and houses a Type 5 engine, (7854). We supplement Station #4 with an additional engine or water tender during the summer fire season.
