Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District will celebrate the opening of a new fire station in the Hidden Valley area on Saturday, December 8th at 11:00 a.m. to Noon. The fire station serves the community of Hidden Valley and is an integral part of the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District response system.
Fire Chief Charles A. Moore is grateful to Washoe County Community Services and the Sheriff’s Department for their service during the five months of the fire station’s construction. “We appreciate the generosity of the Community Service teams and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office to host firefighting crews at the temporary station on Longley Lane. Their generosity and patience allowed the District to provide uninterrupted emergency service to the southeast communities. I also wish to add a special thank you to the citizens of Hidden Valley who donated items for the station.”
The former volunteer fire station was remodeled and expanded to provide sleeping quarters and fire equipment storage for career firefighters who staff the station around the clock.
The Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District includes 11 career fire stations, 13 volunteer fire stations and over 225 firefighters that work cooperatively to provide service to its constituents.
