(County Fire has a new station)…It opened this week.
The new station is located in Winterhaven. It is the result of a contract with the Winterhaven Fire Protection District. Funds for the contract come from revenues paid the District for providing fire protection to the Quechan Casino’s in the Winterhaven area. The Quechan’s had requested the County construct a station in Winterhaven last year. The County will not only provide more coverage to the area, but they will also provide paramedic and medical aid. Ambulance service will continue to be provided by Rural Metro out of Yuma.
