City Takes Action To Close Six Dangerous Pallet Yards

Stockton Fire Department Posting Cease & Desist Operations Notices

The City of Stockton acted this morning to close six pallet yards that pose a significant threat to public safety, due to the volume of wooden pallets and how the pallets are stored. All six businesses were posted with cease and desist notices between 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. this morning and will not be allowed to continue operations until all fire, building and municipal code violations are addressed.

Who: Stockton Fire Department 

What: Stockton Fire Officials will provide information and answer questions about pallet yard closures.

When: Wednesday, August 21, 2019, 10:00 a.m.

Where: Stockton Fire Department – Company 2, 110 W. Sonora Street, Stockton

The City of Stockton requires pallet yards to store idle pallets within 150 feet of a water supply and develop a site plan that identifies pallet storage areas, all fire hydrant locations (on-street and on-property), and fire access roads. The business owners ordered to stop operations today have received repeated education, information, instructions, inspections and violation notices, and all have failed to make corrections and submit plans to operate safely. These businesses include:

  • AA Universal Pallets – 1621 Navy Dr.
  • California Pallets – 235 W. Scotts Ave.
  • Central Pallets – 1881 E. Market St.
  • G. Pallets – 1717 Sanguinetti Ln.
  • New Star Pallets – 2150 E. Fremont St.
  • Pallet Guy – 1030 N. Union St.
