san bernardino county fire rescue e m sRosena Ranch is a master planned housing community built in the early 2000s by Lytle Creek and the I-15 freeway in northern unincorporated Fontana. In August 2021, the South Fire erupted in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains near the community. The fire burned roughly 900 acres and destroyed four homes, taking several days and hundreds of firefighters to contain the blaze. The new fire station will place critical firefighting equipment near these dangerous foothills and provide a quicker initial response should a major wildfire break out.

“This state funding is absolutely crucial to complete this important project,” said Chief Dan Munsey, Fire Chief / Fire Warden for San Bernardino County. “We appreciate the efforts of Assemblyman Ramos to obtain this state funding for a new Rosena Ranch station which will greatly improve our firefighting ability and emergency services in this important area of the County.”
