Canter Companies Lends a Home of Their Own to San Diego Fire Department 

Another Canter Development property used for training purposes

SAN DIEGO, CA. -January 14, 2016- Canter Companies, an Integrated Asset Management™ firm, this week provides The San Diego Fire Department with a development property in San Diego’s North Park district to conduct firefighting training before it breaks ground on Elevon Lofts, a 10-unit urban infill development project designed to accommodate the growing rental population in metro San Diego.

“We appreciate Canter Companies for the opportunity to train at the Bancroft site,” said Grace Yamane, Battalion Chief, Battalion 4, A Division of the City of San Diego Fire Department. “We were able to run sixteen firefighters through a simulated structure fire with an occupant rescue yesterday. Some of these firefighters have only been on the job for a few months and relished the opportunity to put their newfound training to use,” said Yamane.

Located at 3767 Bancroft, the vacant, single-family home sits on a 6,250SF lot downtown.

“The crews made entry into the structure to search for the “occupant,” put out the “fire” while also performing roof ventilation to exhaust the “smoke and heated gases,” which provides an occupant with better survivability.  Today we plan on providing similar training to another batch of firefighters.  We look forward to Canter’s continued support of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department,” said Yamane.

Canter Companies offered their development sites to the Fire-Rescue Department in the past and plans to continue to support The Fire Department with properties that will aid in the training of searches, rescues, and escapes through simulated fire and smoke.

“If we can give the San Diego Fire Department a stage on which to train their firefighters while enhancing the city core with an infill development, then everyone wins,” said CEO of Canter Andrew Canter.

Canter Companies develops both residential and commercial properties to improve San Diego’s urban fabric, targeting territories where the San Diego community can benefit most.

Elevon Lofts is one of many Canter properties such as, C2 Lofts in Hillcrest and Ten on Columbia, located in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood.

Elevon Lofts will begin construction next month and is estimated to be complete in early 2018 after the 3 on Cedros project, located on Cedros Avenue between the Del Mar Racetrack and the Cedros Avenue Design District in Solana Beach. The three 2,600SF homes are slated to open late this year.
