Heyburn Fire Station Shared Some History With The Public
Heyburn, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Mini–Cassia residents had somewhat of a rare opportunity this weekend.
2012 marks the 50th year of a fire station in Heyburn. But of course, over time, there have been some changes.
Heyburn went from a single truck station to a five truck station.
They've also expanded their services to include medical, EMS as well as extrication and rescue.
All the firefighters working out of the station are volunteer.
Clint Edwards, a Heyburn Firefighter says, "we strive to save taxpayers money, we're able to work on another job and respond out as a volunteer service so we don't have to charge as much in taxes in that area."
Edwards goes on to say they went from 50 to 70 calls a year to 300 on average.
