Fire Department expected to take over Presidio duties 

The Fire Department is putting the finishing touches on a contract with the federal government that would turn over the old Presidio Fire Station to The City.

The fate of the 93-year-old fire station on national parkland has been in limbo for two years now as federal funding for two stations – in the Presidio and across the Golden Gate Bridge – has been pulled.

The San Francisco Fire Department is expected to take over the Presidio station, possibly hiring some of the 19 fulltime firefighters employed there, while receiving a yearly payment from the Presidio Trust and the National Park Service.

The specifics of the deal are expected to be discussed Thursday evening at the Fire Commission.
