Fire Station 45 serves the midtown and western portions of the City of Simi Valley. Built in 1978 as a replacement for the previous station that stood on the same site from the early 1930s. Stone remnants of the old station still exist in the monument sign in front of Station 45. The Pacific Avenue Fire Station is staffed daily by three firefighters and houses Engine 45; Reserve Engine 145 and Utility 45. It is also the secondary home for Dozer 4, a fire-fighting bulldozer staffed by an operator and a swamper.
