A crowd of 100 community well-wishers, as well as firefighters past and present, gathered proudly to witness the ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony of the new LA County Fire Station #71 in Malibu, CA on November 14, 2014.  Simpson & Simpson served as Project/Construction Manager for the $6.9 million, 5,800 SF design-build fire station that includes an apparatus bay for fire engine, truck and paramedic squad. The existing building was demolished to make room for the new facility which includes living quarters, kitchen and office space for the shift personnel.
