Police, Fire and Emergency Services building in the heart of downtown San Rafael. The steel-framed facility features a 17,217-square-foot basement and apparatus parking area and includes a shared central lobby with curtain wall and storefront systems, sunshades and multiple, complex interrelated building systems.
On-site parking for patrol and specialty support vehicles and all San Rafael Police Department units, including records, administration and the office of the Police Chief, patrol operations, investigations, dispatch, evidence and property and professional standards, are located at the Public Safety Center.
The building also holds the San Rafael Fire Department’s administrative division, such as the office of the Fire Chief, fire prevention bureau and administrative staff. Fire Station 51’s apparatus bay space allows for a cross-staffing truck and secure bay for the vehicle. It also provides living accommodations for four firefighters and the Battalion Chief.
