Dear Residents,

This letter is to serve as notice of upcoming construction activity for the Kensington Public Safety Building Seismic Renovation Project. The KFPD is undertaking this work to provide the community with a seismically-safe Essential Services structure that is fully code-compliant and will accommodate the increasing number of firefighters necessary to staff the building on Red Flag Days, with the associated equipment and space needs of a modern fire station.

KFPD has contracted with CWS Construction for the project. For more information on the history of the project please visit

Construction preparation activities will begin Monday, October 17, 2022. Construction is estimated to last until April 2024. Construction will be scheduled from Monday to Friday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM, with no construction activity on weekends and holidays. We apologize for any inconvenience the construction activities may cause.

During this time, our temporary Fire Station 65 is located at 814 Craft Ave, El Cerrito CA 94530. For all emergencies, call 911 or 925-933-1313.
