This station was built in the late 1990's in an effort to lower response times and add more adequate fire coverage to the "upper end" of our district. It was also instrumental in lowering the ISO rating for our district in turn lowering insurance premiums. Today approximately half of our members respond out of this station. Below are the apparatus this station houses...
