Fillmore Fire Station #27 is one of three new fire stations built in Ventura County. The one-story building has three apparatus bays and nine dorm rooms and replaced a nearly halfcentury-old facility to better equip firefighters and modern equipment. Located at 133 C Street in Fillmore, California, the station occupies approximately 15,000 square feet incorporating the fire station, an Incident Command/Training Center and a garage, with room for expansion. Miyamoto provided engineering services. Sustainable elements include the ability to capture stormwater runoff. Fire Station #27’s improvement area retains stormwater on site with a dual system of capturing and storing rainwater in a cistern that can supply landscape irrigation and percolation into the ground through on-site bioswales.
