Fire Station 143 officially opened in Hasley Canyon Saturday, marking its first day of round-the-clock service.

The station, located on Hasley Canyon Road and Gibraltar Lane in Castaic, will respond to emergency medical rescues, structure and brush fires as well as 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 days a week. The new firehouse will also host training sessions for department personnel. 

“The station personnel 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.
