On November 2, 2004, Escondido voters approved Proposition P, which provided $82.6 million for the construction of a much-needed new joint Police and Fire Facility, as well as the construction of three new neighborhood fire stations and a replacement Fire Station 1.

The Escondido Fire Department Administration offices are now located at the new combined Police and Fire Facility, located at 1163 North Centre City Parkway. The Fire Department area includes administrative and training spaces, fire prevention services, paramedic services management, and community education areas.
