Madera County Sheriff Unveils Oakhurst Logistics Facility

OAKHURST–Earlier this week, Madera County Sheriff Tyson Pogue hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially unveil the Madera Sheriff’s Logistics Facility. The facility is a 16,000 square foot warehouse with a design to exclusively house and maintain emergency equipment. It will also facilitate future disaster management.

This building is more than just a storage space; it is a beacon of resilience, enabling us to manage the initial stages of any disaster facing our mountain communities. The building has climate control, multi-use restrooms, showers, and the infrastructure to support food and vaccination distribution. It is able to transition to an emergency shelter when needed. It will be a hub for staging fire or rescue equipment, managing search and rescue operations. Also coordinating law enforcement responses. In essence, this facility’s design will be able to withstand whatever major challenges we face.

Madera County Sheriff Tyson Pogue states, “Today marks a significant milestone for our community. Madera County has been no stranger to adversity, having faced its fair share of wildfires and storms, leading to evacuations and the activation of emergency operations. As we gather here to celebrate the opening of the Madera Sheriff’s Logistics Facility, we are not just cutting a ribbon; we are embarking on a new chapter of enhanced public safety and disaster preparedness.”
The completion of this facility is possible because of the unwavering support of our Board of Supervisors and County Administration. A special acknowledgment is also due to Sergeant Joseph Wilder and Undersheriff Darin McMechan, whose vision and dedication were instrumental in every aspect of this building’s construction.

The collaborative efforts to bring this project to fruition will benefit generations of Madera County residents.
