Ambulance: Station & Vehicles
6500 - Ambulance Station
The ambulance station was built in 1999. The first meeting held at the new station was in April of 1999. It was built for three ambulances and 30 members. Currently in 2007, we have 52 ambulance members, 4 ambulances, two quick response vehicles and a 20 foot disaster management trailer. We quickly out grew our new station due to our community's exponential growth. That is why we had to purchase the adjoining property in late 2001, which consists of a house and pole shed. Below are some pictures of our new station.
