A proposed fire station in the Berkeley hills won the support of the East Bay Regional Park District Tuesday. 

Although Berkeley City Council has already approved the station, the city is required to win support of the park district and the East Bay Municipal Utility District before it can move the project forward. 

East Bay MUD, which owns the land at 3000 Shasta Rd., where the new fire station is planned, is expected to approve sale of the land to the city on Nov. 12. 

Although Berkeley will run the new fire station, the park district will help staff the station during high fire hazard days.
