Important Public Safety Project Breaks Ground in the Town of Sunol

With two fire engines as the backdrop, Alameda County elected officials, the Alameda County Fire Marshal, CAL FIRE Chief and community members gathered to celebrate the start of construction for Town of Sunol Fire Suppression System Project a little over a week ago. This is an important public safety project that will enhance fire protection capabilities and add 26 additional fire hydrants in Sunol.  The event focused on highlighting the partnerships and collaboration among the various stakeholders and local community to move this project into construction.  Alameda County Supervisor Valle also highlighted this project’s importance to ensure that the residents and businesses in the Town of Sunol are better protected during an emergency. Construction for this project is anticipated to be completed in summer 2015.

Key stakeholders and elected officials gathered to celebrate the start of construction for this important project.
