Fire Station 143 officially opened in Hasley Canyon Friday, marking it’s first day of round-the-clock service.

The station, located on Hasley Canyon Road and Gibraltar Lane in Castaic, will respond to emergency medical situations, structure fires, brush fires and hazardous materials incidents, said Assistant Fire Chief Gregory Hisel.

“With this location and its access to the freeways it’ll be a quicker response, it’ll shorten the time to arrive on the incident.” Hisel said.

“When there’s a brush fire up the 5 freeway we will respond to that.”

The station will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven day a week.

There will also be training out of the location.

“The station personal will be focused on the core values and saving the communities through integrity and team work and caring and community and courage and commitment.” Hisel said.
